about this book

In the autumn of 1944, during fierce fighting in the Vosges Mountains of eastern France, one of the most amazing incidents in military history occurred: the rescue of two infantry battalions, one American, one German, cut off, far behind the enemy lines of each. Includes bibliographical references.

“Lost Battalions is an extraordinary story of uncommon courage and valor on both sides…This book is an important addition to the scarce literature of the Vosges campaign and the Seventh Army’s attack on through southern France.”–Infantry Magazine
