Publisher's Summary

December 1944: Deep in the Ardennes forest, a platoon of 18 men under the command of 20-year-old lieutenant Lyle Bouck huddle in their foxholes. Under attack and vastly outnumbered, they repulse three German assaults in a fierce day-long battle, killing more than 500 Germans. 

Only when Bouck's men run out of ammunition do they surrender. As POWs, Bouck's platoon experience an ordeal far worse than combat: trigger-happy German guards, Allied bombing raids, and a daily ration of thin soup. Somehow, the men of Bouck's platoon all miraculously survive. 

Alex Kershaw brings to life the story of America's most decorated small unit of the war, and one of the most inspiring stories in American history.

More Proof of why they are called the Greatest Generation, so young so brave so tough and what miracles.

This story is slow getting started with so many characters and little story’s going one to another and so many to keep track of but once the war gets started it only gets better as it goes only much sadness for them all and all one can say was it was a miracle from God that many made it alive and I had no idea that the battle of the bulge had hero’s and as young as this and my heart goes out to them for what they did for their Country.
