Publisher's Summary

Sitting Ducks pieces together the story of an impossible and lesser-known WWII mission. In December 1944, during the bloody Battle of the Bulge, teams of German commandos disguised as American soldiers slipped behind the US front lines. Riding in captured US jeeps, they committed sabotage, sowed confusion, and caused paranoia among American troops. Word quickly spread that the undercover commandos were out to kill US General Eisenhower. Popular legend has made the false flag operation out to be a skilled and menacing ploy with cunning German spies speaking American English. Their commander, propaganda hero SS Lt. Col. Otto Skorzeny, seemed a mastermind. But the reality was much different, and all the more deadly. The planning and training were slapdash, the mission desperate, its chances slim to none.

    Where does Sitting Ducks rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best narrations I have listened to. The quality is great but what is most memorable is how endearing the storyteller sounds.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sitting Ducks?

    It sounds like a war story told by grandparents


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Suspenseful moments underneath enemy lines


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The entire process that brought about the event, unwillingness to stop what was begun, and how poorly it was managed, and hopeless the recruits were left yet the creators felt totally indifferent to their plight.
