Beschrijving:

On December 17, 1944, during the Battle of the Bulge, more than eighty unarmed United States soldiers were shot down after having surrendered to an SS unit near the small crossroads town of Malmedy, Belgium. Although more than thirty men lived to tell of the massacre, exactly what took place that day remains mired in controversy. Was it just a battlefield incident or rather a deliberate slaughter? Who gave the orders: infamous SS leader Jochen Peiper or someone else?

Fatal Crossroads vividly reconstructs the critical events leading up to the atrocity--for the first time in all their revealing detail--as well as the aftermath. Danny S. Parker spent fifteen years researching original sources and interviewing more than one hundred witnesses to uncover the truth behind the Malmedy massacre, and the result is riveting.
