Team Yankee, the New York Times best-seller by Harold Coyle, presents a glimpse of what it would have been like for the soldiers who would have had to meet the relentless onslaught of Soviet and Warsaw Pact divisions. Using the geo-political and military scenarios described by General Sir John Hackett, former NORTHAG commander and author of World War Three; August 1985, Team Yankee follows the war as seen from the turret of Captain Sean Bannon's tank.

First I read this book several times. Then I listened to the cassette tape version read by the late great CHARLES DURNING. The bar was set rather high. It is with some regret that I must say this reading does not live up to my expectations. If anyone listened to DURNING version you would know what I'm talking about. Having said that anything to do with armored combat has my attention.

Between December 16, 1944 and January 15, 1945, American forces found themselves entrenched in the heavily forested Ardennes region of Belgium, France, and Luxembourg defending against an advancing German army amid freezing temperatures, deep snow, and dense fog. Operation Herbstnebel - Autumn Mist - was a massive German counter-offensive that stunned the Allies in its scope and intensity.

I listen and have read anything i can find about this battle. I enjoyed it very much, however i would very much agree with other reviews regarding the readers way of pronounciation of places names, etc. It was somewhat annoying. Some of which i have never heard before, " OOULTRA ". Instead of. ULTRA...The one that really weird was Lt Col Adams should have been Abrams....but other that i enjoyed it . Oh by the way if i had not been familar with the people and places mentioned i would not have known in some cases what the guy was talking about.
