By Stephen M. Rusiecki
Stephen Rusiecki's In Final Defense of the Reich recounts the American 71st Infantry Division's success in exacting all signs of life from the Reich's 6th SS Mountain Division in central Germany in April 1945. In Final Defense serves as a comprehensive analysis of the battle between the Wehrmacht and the Western Front, following both the American and the German division from their creation through their historic battle in April 1945. Furthermore, Rusiecki's In Final Defense serves as a testament to the experience of war from the perspective of both soldiers and civilians.
