Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Little is known about the German soldiers who crossed American lines during the Battle of the Bulge in December, 1944, impersonating American soldiers to relay crucial information back to their Nazi generals. Hollywood has portrayed them as assassins and highly-trained, American-speaking killing machines. But Steve Anderson's research has uncovered a very different truth: these were scared soldiers who had exaggerated their English skills in the hopes of getting sent far from the battlefront. They had no idea what they were actually signing up for. They were poorly trained and poorly outfitted, and their mission was doomed from the start by poor leadership and the futility of their objective. Anderson draws on what scant historical evidence remains of Operation Greif to present a new view on its participants, imagining in vivid detail the sense of powerlessness and despair that they must have felt as they advanced behind enemy lines. Sitting Ducks illuminates the crucial role the soldiers of Operation Greif played in the Battle of the Bulge--crucial not only to advancing the German offensive, but also to rally the dispirited American soldiers. --Malissa Kent
