Using new information unearthed in archives on both continents and interviews with scores of American, Canadian, British, and German fighters who took part in the campaign, W. Denis Whitaker-himself a participant in the Rhineland campaign-and Shelagh Whitaker cast new light on those desperate, heroic final weeks of the war.Rhineland shows us what happened in the fall of 1944, when the Allied forces in northwest Europe were closer than ever to victory, but needed to breach the Siegfried Line, cross the Roer River and push through the Rhineland to the Rhine itself, to make the victory complete. The Germans, however, still maintained a high morale and held the key to the Roer crossing: the ability to make the river impassable by opening its seven dams and flooding the valley.The Germans' resolve and unity was only one impediment to Allied victory. At Allied Command, the scene was one of conflicting aims, national jealousy, and feuding generals. Only after many delays was the Supreme Commander, Dwight Eisenhower, able to issue orders for a first assault: a pincer attack in the north that would allow Allied troops to advance into the Reichswald Forest. It was February 8, 1945. The battle for the Rhineland had begun., [PU: St Martin's Press]
