    1. This is a factual account of Operation Grief Griffin , the German false flag operation during the Ardennes offensive of late 1944 The operation and its leader, SS Lieutenant Colonel SS Oberst rmbannf hrer Skorzeny, are the stuff of legend.Anderson debunks the legend, and presents the facts, insofar as they can be determined he notes in his blog that Doomed secret agents don t write journals or reports and their commanders didn t keep intricate records The result is a compelling piece of work tha [...]

    2. I am loving this Kindle Single format Like his other KS, Double Edged Sword, in Sitting Ducks WWII scholar Steve Anderson mines the European Theater for little known but compelling stories of bravery and bravery mixed with just a touch of whackiness This quick read brings to life the poor German schmucks who were coerced into infiltrating the American lines as saboteurs and spies without the aid of much training, skill, equipment or motivation in the waning days of the conflict Couldn t put it d [...]

    4. WW2 histories tend to be on the long side Here is a quick, fascinating historical read delivered instantly for 2 bucks This is what s great about e reading.

    5. As a Kindle single, Sitting Ducks is a really short book that reads like a magazine article But it was very interesting It describes a secret mission that the Germans instigated during the Battle of the Bulge, in which they had German soldiers dressed as Americans to infiltrate the Allied lines However, details of the mission had leaked in advance, so the Americans were looking for these impersonators, many of whom could speak only broken English As a result, many were caught and executed as spi [...]

    6. A short interesting book a about a not so famous part of WW2.In 1944 Hitler decides to train soldiers in American language and culture, give them captured American military equipment and send them into enemy territory in order to do sabotage and spread confusion These volunteer soldiers where trained for just for some weeks and some could hardly speak English at all Many of them where captured and executed as spies.This little kindle single is a fact based account of this history It is well writ [...]

    7. A Kindle single describing the German effort to infiltrate behind the American lines in the final days of WWII using soldiers with some to minimal knowledge of English.This poorly thought out plan accomplished little and was quite incredible for the number of mistakes that were made in implementing it.Interesting.

    8. Interesting storyI thought this was an interesting story about a small, desperate mission I had heard of, but not in detail.

    9. I haven t heard of this glorified war story prior to reading thisI only say that because in the preface the author put a lot of emphasis that what actually happened was not as spectacular as Hollywood or later accounts have made out.The story given from the evil Nazi s side of the war, going on a mission disguised as Americans to infiltrate and attack them or something That is really the point, what we get is a look at how inept the German bureaucracy and desperate their military had been.We con [...]

    10. In 1944, during the Battle of the Bulge, German military personnel dressed a American soldiers were released to cross the line, infiltrate the American forces and wreak havok on the allied operations Poorly trained, and totlally inept, most were caught and executed as spies This is thier story.It is a very short book, do not pay a lot to get it Use Kindle if you can

    11. Another nice offering in the Kindle Single format This looks at a particular effort on the part of the German Army in the BATTLE OF THE Bulge to mount a false flag attack on the Allied armies If yo have N interest in the WWII era this may interest you But, like many of the Kindle Singles it may just whet your appetite to read further on the subject.

    12. Interesting to read about the German war effort in my own country at the Battle of the Bulge A mission which seemed doomed from the beginning

    13. This was a good bookif you are interested in war stories This takes place during The Battle Of The Bulge.
