In December 1944, Jochen Peiper, commander of the premier regiment of the premier division of the German Army, penetrated US lines in the Belgian Ardennes. Peiper and his soldiers were later accused of one of the major massacres of WWII: the infamous Malmedy Massacre. The massacre became an international issue, which, in the final analysis, discredited American military justice. This is the story of the week of the massacre and the years of trial following it. B&w maps and historical photos are included. The book was first published in Great Britain in 1971, and reprinted in 1996. There is no subject index.
