From post in Forum:

"The Little Known Front," written by Eric Urbain and published in Belgium in 2002, was translated by Lane Barton, G-345, 87th Infantry Division, and privately printed in the U.S. in 2004. After being temporarily out-of-print, a new printing is expected in the middle of February 2006.

The book covers the events that took place from December 21, 1944, to January 14, 1945, during the Battle of the Bulge in the area west of Bastogne. While concentrating on the stories of the men in the 87th Infantry, 11th Armored, and 17th Airborne Divisions, the author also discusses the role of the 761st Tank Battalion from the time it joined the 345th Infantry on December 31st up to the action around Tillet on January 9th.

"The Little Known Front" is an 8 1/2" by 11" softbound book containing over 300 pages, 150 photographs and maps, and a personal name index. It is available from Robert Reed, 38 Bagdad Rd, Durham NH 03824. Please see the Forum post (click here) for pricing details.
