"Nash has an excellent eye for tactical situations and the ability
to describe and analyze them clearly... For students of the German
army in World War II, as well as students interested in the late
1944 campaign, Victory Was beyond Their Grasp is a must
read."--Richard L. Dinardo, Professor of National Security Affairs,
US Marine Corps Command and Staff College "Parameters "
"In this new edition of his text, author Douglas E. Nash investigates the contribution of the Volks-Grenadier Divisions (VGDs) of the German army to the Nazi war effort throughout World War II. Beginning with their first battles in the H rtgen Forest and culminating in their final defeat at the hands of United States forces in the Harz Mountains, the author reveals the true nature of the VGDs as elite ground forces selected from all branches of the Wehrmact to serve the interests of the National Socialist Party. The author is a retired U.S. Army Colonel currently employed by the U.S. Navy's Marine Corps University in Virginia."--ProtoView
"Nash illustrates clearly the late 1944 situation of the German Army in the west in ways not always considered... To be sure, the book does assume that the reader is familiar with the 1944 campaign in the west. Even the novice, however, would profit from Nash's knowledge of the German Army, its men and equipment at that stage of the war. Thus, for both students of the German Army in World War II as well as those interested in the late 1944 campaign, this is a must-read."--The NYMAS Review
