Goodreads Rating: 4.2
The Battered Bastards of Bastogne is the product of contributions by 530 soldiers who were on the ground or in the air over Bastogne. They lived and made this history and much of it is told in their own words. The material contributed by these men of the 101st Airborne Division, the Armor, Tank Destroyer, Army Air Force, and others is tailored meticulously by the author and placed on the historical framework known to most…


Unlike a lot of volumes on Bastogne, Koskimaki’s work is a collective memoir. It is not told by scholars who examined combat movements after the event, but by the firsthand experiences of those who lived through the Battle of the Bulge; a powerful collection of first-hand accounts. Together these stories create a unique portrait of trench-level combat and result in a unique and comprehensive eyewitness account with incalculable historic value for future generations.

A fantastic book!
