Well I wasn't much interested in the Bulge either, but the more I played the more wanted to know about the history, and the more interested I became in it.
I have now read countless accounts of it on the internet, and a book about the I&R Platoon "The longest Winter".
The only problem is most of what I have read so far is from the Allies perspective of it. If anyone knows of a book from the German perspective that has been translated into English I would be very interested to know about it.
Here are a couple I found with a Google search.
The Battle of the Bulge: The German View : Perspectives from Hitler's High Command Greenhill Books - 1999 - Hardback - 237 pages - ISBN 1853673544;
Description: This text examines preparations for the offensive, the progress of the operation and assessments of the Wehrmacht's performance from leading figures in German high command, including a transcription of Hitler's key speech on December 12th, 1944.
Hitler's Ardennes Offensive: The German View of the Battle of the Bulge Greenhill Books/Lionel Leventhal, Limited - 2005 - Paperback - 264 pages - ISBN 1853676837;
Description: ow in paperback, this classic work gives unparalleled insight into the German view of the offensive known to Germany as Wacht am Rhein and to the Allies as the Battle of the Bulge. The book vividly recounts how Hitler and his generals perceived the progress and ultimate failure of their final great assault. The Ardennes offensive in December 1944 surprised the Allies with its ferocity, and was intended to turn the course of the war in Germany's favour. Numerous subsequent accounts of the battle have tended towards the perspective of the Allied victors, lacking first-hand detail about German intentions and operations. Now for the first time in a single volume, historian Danny S. Parker has brought together many rare documents representing the views of all the major personalities within the German army headquarters. These include Oberstgruppenfuhrer Josef Dietrich and Generalmajor Fritz Kramer, General Hasso von Manteuffel, Generalfeldmarschall Wilhelm Keitel and others. Everything from preparations for the offensive, to attitudes to the whole campaign before it started and after it was brought to a close are covered in this book. As with "Fighting in Hell" and "The Anvil of War", two Greenhill books presenting accounts of campaigns in Russia written by the senior German officers involved, "Hitler's Ardennes Offensive" provides a fascinating and invaluable record of the German perspective, essential for a balanced view of the battle.
Dark December : The Full Account of the Battle of the Bulge; Trade Paper ISBN: 9781594161506 2011 Author: Robert E. Merriam
Synopsis: Dark December occupies a distinguished place among war books. Every paragraph is based upon evidence, not flimsy wartime rumors. Technical enough for the professional, accurate enough for the historian (in fact, it is history of the best), it is lucid and understandable for the general reader."- New York Herald Tribune "If other veterans of the Army's historical division can maintain Mr. Merriam's high standard of stimulating, critical and painstaking work, we will be fortunate. Dark December can be heartily recommended to anyone faintly interested in the war."- New York Times"The book explodes a number of myths which have been winning their improper way into general belief." -Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., Booklist The massive German counteroffensive through Belgium's Ardennes forest in December 1944 took the American and British armies by surprise and changed the outcome of the war. With whole divisions destroyed and decimated, the American army scrambled to contain the German threat, while also trying to determine how such an attack had gone undetected. The Americans succeeded in winning the month-long battle, commonly known as the Battle of the Bulge, through the tenacity of several pockets of troops, notably those in the Belgian town of Bastogne, and the remarkable rapid movement of Patton's Third Army to seal the breech in the American lines. The battle stalled the British and American advances and lengthened the war with the result that the Soviet Union was able to make greater gains in Europe than previously anticipated. Dark December is a thorough and engrossing examination of the Battle of the Bulge by a historian who had the opportunity to prepare notes as the battle was occurring and consult classified American as well as German records. Notably, the book contains unique and critical information, including details gleaned from interviews conducted by the author with commanding officers on both sides, some of which are the only reports gathered from these sources. Originally published in 1947, this the first paperback edition with the complete original text and maps.
They appear to be historical views of the operation from the German perspective.
