Snow & steel : the Battle of the Bulge, 1944-45 by Peter Caddick-Adams( Book )

18 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was Hitler's last gamble. Codenamed Herbstnebel--"Autumn Mist"--The operation was a massive counter-offensive involving half a million German soldiers in an attempt to recapture Antwerp, encircle the four Allied armies, and force a treaty that would allow Hitler to turn his attention to the Eastern front. Planned in complete secrecy and playing out between December 16, 1944 and January 15, 1945, the Battle of the Bulge, as it has come to be known, was ultimately the bloodiest battle fought by U.S. forces in World War II, and indeed the largest land battle in American history. Fighting amid freezing temperatures, deep snow, and dense fog, some 89,000 of the 610,000 American servicemen committed to the campaign were wounded or killed. The legacies of Bastogne and Malmedy--heroism and horror--continue to reverberate in the imagination of generations.-- From cover
Monte Cassino : ten armies in Hell by Peter Caddick-Adams( Book )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The five-month Monte Cassino campaign in central Italy is one of the best-known European land battles of World War Two, alongside D-Day and Stalingrad. It has a particular resonance now, because Cassino, with its multitude of participating armies - most notably the American 5th Army under the controversial General Mark Clark - was perhaps Ithe/I campaign of the Second World War that most closely anticipates the coalition operations of today, with its ever-shifting cast of players stuck in inhospitable, mountainous terrain, pursuing an objective set by unknowing politicians in distant capitals, where victory is difficult to define
Monty and Rommel : parallel lives by Peter Caddick-Adams( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two men came to personify generalship in the Second World War: Bernard Montgomery for the British and Erwin Rommel for the Germans. In the span of a few years, they fought a series of extraordinary duels across several theaters of war. Ever since, historians have assessed their leadership, personalities, and skill. Born four years apart, the two men followed a remarkably similar trajectory. Military historian Peter Caddick-Adams explores their lives, beginning with their provincial upbringing and the brutal trench fighting of World War I--where both nearly died. Obsessed with fitness and training, the future field marshals emerged with glowing records. They taught in staff colleges, wrote infantry textbooks, and fought each other as divisional commanders in 1940 before taking charge of their respective armies as the war raged on. This first comparative biography of these two soldiers explores how each was "made" by their war leaders, Churchill and Hitler, and how their strategies permeate down to today's armies.--From publisher description
Monte Cassino by Rudolf Böhmler( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a German battalion commander Rudolf Bohmler fought in the front line during the fierce battles fought at Monte Cassino. After the war he wrote this remarkable history, one of the first full-length accounts of this famous and controversial episode in the struggle for Italy. His pioneering work, which has long been out of print, gives a fascinating insight into the battle as it was perceived at the time and as it was portrayed immediately after the war. While his fluent narrative offers a strong German view of the fighting, it also covers the Allied side of the story, at every level, in graphic detail. The climax of his account, his description of the tenacious defence of the town of Cassino and the Monte Cassino abbey by exhausted, outnumbered German troops, has rarely been equalled His book presents a soldier's view of the fighting but it also examines the tactics and planning on both sides

Footsteps across time : the evolution, use and relevance of battlefield visits to the British Armed Forces by Peter Caddick-Adams( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study examines the educational use made by military forces around theworld, but primarily those of the United Kingdom, of visits to past battlefields. Investigation suggests this practice commenced formally in Prussia and may be nearingits 200th anniversary; certainly the British Army?s Staff College at Camberley has beenvisiting battlefields for educational purposes since at least 1885. To date, no extendedacademic study of this practice has been undertaken, and no specific use of the StaffCollege Battlefield Tour Archive has been made in this context. An examination ismade of educational theory, by which the effectiveness and value of battlefield visitingcan be measured. This study creates a typology of battlefield visiting, and thusacknowledges a much older civilian tradition of making pilgrimages to past scenes ofconflict (initially to pray for the souls of the dead), which later evolved into civilianbattlefield tourism to destinations such as Waterloo and Gettysburg. The work examines the nature of British battlefield visiting, using the StaffCollege Battlefield Tour Archive, in four phases: before the First World War; during theinter-war period; during the post-Second World War and Cold War periods, and at thetime of writing. Throughout the study, parallels are drawn with military battlefield visitsundertaken by the American and German armed forces. The conclusion is made thatbattlefield visiting is a unique and valuable tool in military education that is not well managed, and that no recognition is given to its value in terms of classic educationtheory
