World War II ⦫ Kindle By Antony Beevor 䋧 Praise for Ardennes 1944One of the finest narrative military historians now writing What makes Ardennes 1944so effective is not just the vividness of the prose, the clarity of the authors presentation of tactical events or his skill at evoking through description and careful quotation the look and even smell of the battlefield Beevor also does a brilliant job of weaving together the grand operational and the tactical narratives, showing how the decisions of generals do, or do not, shape circumstances on the ground The New York Times Book Review A panoramic and intricately detailed account USA Today A searing account A salutary reminder of that thin veneer detected byFreudbetween the civilized and the primitive in each of us Ardennes 1944ought to prompt some careful reflection on our modern age The Wall Street Journal Beevor has become one of the most respected, as well as globally popular, chroniclers of the struggle Beevors books have hitherto gained less celebrity and sales success in the US than they deserve, but Ardennes 1944may be the one to change that New York Review of Books Award winning military historian Beevor examines the Battle of the Bulge in depth The result is a panoramic and remarkably frank treatment of the German attack, ordered by Hitler as a last ditch attempt to reverse the momentum of battle in Western Europe Beevor skewers the pretensions and weaknesses of generals and details atrocities and mistreatment of both civilians and surrendering enemies by both sides T his is a treasure of memorable portraits, striking details, fascinating revelations, and broad insightslikely to be the definitive account of the battle for years to come Essential reading for anyone interested in World War II Kirkus Reviews Starred Review Even readers well versed on the war in Europe will welcome this book It is exhaustively researched and full of fresh insights and thoughtful explanations Those who want to understand how the attack unfolded and why it failed will not find a valuable addition to the literature on World War II The Christian Science Monitor Beevor The Second World War D Day , who has won numerous awards for his works, demonstrates here why he is a celebrated historian and writer Ardennes 1944, or The Battle of the Bulge, is squarely focused on this critical World War II battle spanning August 1944 to April 1945 The author tracks troop movements and positioning throughout the long conflict, while accounting for decisions made on the field, in the war room, and all the way up the chain of command to Gen Dwight Eisenhower The writing is both intense and gripping a wonderful read Library Journal Beevor paints a searing portrait of a world weary of war Beevors battle descriptions crackle with you were there authenticity The Boston Globe To write the history of war is above all to tell its story No one tells it better than Antony Beevor He combines wide ranging archival research, published sources, personal accounts, and firsthand knowledge of the terrain He moves easily among discussions of policy and strategy, the personalities and interactions of commanders, and the viewpoints and standpoints of the people at the sharp endnot only those in the tanks and the foxholes but the civilians caught in the mesh of modern war And Ardennes 1944is arguably his best book to date MHQ The Quarterly Journal of Military History Beevor has the art of preserving the individual perspective on the battlefield while placing it among the perspectives of platoon, regiment, division, commanders, politicians and civilians Beevor cares about the soldiers and the truth, an old fashioned set of concerns that is balanced with modern literary skill This book clarifies, without simplifying, the human experiences and political stakes of the battle for the Ardennes, bringing realism to the battlefield and coherence to the larger history of the war Timothy Snyder, The Guardian Indispensible LG1 David Aaronovitch, The Times Ardennes 1944is a book that plays very much to Beevors strengths, combining the view from the top with the view from below and vividly portraying the dark realities of military combat Beevor has delivered another perfectly judged episode of the second world war, a worthy companion to the works that made his name Yet again, he has shown that he has the gift of alchemy Roger Moorhouse, The Financial Times What builds up is an exemplary picture of the misery and horror of this most appalling conflict, in which than a million men fought in conditions comparable to those on the Eastern Front Clare Mulley, The Australian No one has recounted it better than Beevor His gripping, beautifully written narrative moves seamlessly from the generals command posts to the privates in their snow covered foxholes, and confirms him as the finest chronicler of war in the business Saul David, The Observer Beevor weaves a brilliant narrative out of all this drama As in his previous books, his gifts are strongest in focusing on telling details from different perspectives a vital historical insight Mark Urban, The Sunday Times The best military prose of our era El Pas, Spain If theres one thing that sets Beevor apart from other historiansbeyond his gifts as a storyteller its because he is not afraid to look at the most uncomfortable, even frightening subjects,but does so in a way that does not threaten the reader Theres rarely a judgmental note to his writing Its like having Virgil there to lead you through the underworld he doesnt leave you stranded amid the horror, but leads you back out again, a wiser person for having undergone the journey Keith Lowe, The Daily Telegraph The Master of War The Ardennes is the latest of Beevors books on the campaigns of the Second World War It is a superb addition to the canon which has taken us from Stalingrad to Normandy in 1944 and the final gruesome battle for Berlin, not forgetting the masterly single volume history of the entire war It is written with all of Beevors customary verve and elegance His remarkable and trademark ability is to encompass the wide sweep of campaigns yet never forget the piquant details of what happened to the individual He focuses brilliantly on the key moments that turned the battle Robert Fox, London Evening Standard Beevor is as good on the rows behind the front lines as he is on the battles themselves A sweeping, sobering read, written with all the confidence and aplomb that Beevor fans expect Marcus Tanner, The
