"A rich and intriguing story whcih the authors disentangle with great skill."--Sunday Telegraph

Beevor's Ardennes 1944: The Battle of the Bulge is now available from Viking Books 


In this brilliant synthesis of social, political, and cultural history, Antony Beevor and Artemis Cooper present a vivid and compelling portrayal of the City of Lights after its liberation.
