Day-to-day timeline Battle of the Bulge

Post by PatrickBateman » 14 Dec 2018 18:51

Hi,

The title says it all, I am looking for a type of timeline about the Battle of the Bulge, a day-to-day report. Wikipedia is a good start but I need one with more depth and background information, Wikpedia skips a lot of events. Are there any good websites or books?

It doesn't have to contain the exact numbers of men, tanks, aircraft etc, but what I want is the movement of units (both German and Allies) from point A to B. I know it's a real big event with many troops involved, Kampfgruppe Peiper alone takes a lot of time to read all his movements during Wacht am Rhein.

Battle of the Bulge Then and Now is a good start also Duel in the Mist volumes for an LSSAH perspective

Thanks keenan, http://www.ibiblio.org/hyperwar/USA/USA ... index.html, very interesting and extensive site. Any book recommendations?
Ardennes 1944: Hitler's Last Gamble? Battle: The Story of the Bulge (John Toland)?

Readily available in PDF, "Battlebook. Senior Leader Staff Ride: The Battle of the Bulge."
Free download on several sites on the net. Runs about 170 pages. Excellent series.
