No Category

December 16, 1944. In the frozen forests of the Ardennes, a surprise attack by the German army on American Allied forces launched the long, hard slog that was the Battle of the Bulge. Sir Winston Churchill called it "the greatest American battle of the war and... an ever-famous American victory." World War II historian, Pulitzer Prize winner, and New York Times-bestselling author Rick Atkinson skilfully navigates the attacks, counterattacks, advances, and retreats of this terrible bloodbath. Whether history buffs or newcomers to the topic, young readers will appreciate the author's clear and accessible prose, as well as the many fascinating facts, photographs, and statistics.

Review: Praise for "D-Day" "Atkinson seats readers at the secret meetings of the Allied commanders, ejects them with paratroopers over the foggy French countryside, puts them into landing craft to hear soldiers barf and exclaim, and sends them out to die bloodily on the beaches wracked with enemy fire. . . . A grand and historically significant tale told with dash and authority." --"Kirkus Reviews" Praise for "D-Day" "You can't just tell kids that history is cool; you have to prove it, and Atkinson does." --Steve Sheinkin, The New York Times Book Review on D-Day "Atkinson seats readers at the secret meetings of the Allied commanders, ejects them with paratroopers over the foggy French countryside, puts them into landing craft to hear soldiers barf and exclaim, and sends them out to die bloodily on the beaches wracked with enemy fire . . . a grand and historically significant tale told with dash and authority." --Kirkus Reviews on D-Day You can't just tell kids that history is cool; you have to prove it, and Atkinson does.
