Decision at Strasbourg 

By David P. Colley

 

In Decision at Strasbourg, David P. Colley explores what might have happened if General Eisenhower had not unexpectedly ordered the Sixth Army Group to halt their planned attack across the Rhine a mere day before its planned execution. For the first time ever Ike's strategic mistake has been analyzed and possible outcomes of the halted attack - including the ending of the war six months early and the saving of thousands of lives - are explored. Undeniably fascinating, Colley's analysis of Ike's decision at Strasbourg is sure to captivate all insterest in World War II and its lessons.
