From Goodreads

“It’s hell,” he said flatly. “Pure unadulterated hell. That’s the only word for it. It’s hell.”

The Battle of Huertgen Forest was one of the bloodiest engagements of the Second World War.

Fought between American and German forces between 19th September to 16th December it was the longest single battle the U.S. Army has ever fought.

During those three months six American Infantry Divisions — the 1st, 4th, 8th, 9th, 28th and 83rd — and part of the 5th Armored Division fought against the battle-hardened Germans.

Lt. Paul Boesch provides an eyewitness account of the horrors that he and his men saw as they struggled through the rain and mud, avoiding artillery, mortars and mines.

This book is a remarkable account of one of the most vicious battles in World War Two told honestly by a man who was there.

“A true but little-told account of what it means to be an Infantryman.” Major General William G. Weaver.
