Just after awakening this morning, I finished reading Osprey Campaign #75: Lorraine 1944: Patton vs Manteuffel, which discusses the run-in between Patton's Third Army and the German Fifth Panzer Army, to the detriment of the German's. Nice. There's some fairly good descriptions of the tactical situations in this book, more comprehensive than other books I've read on the subject; they seem to slough over these months as if the authors want to get right to The Battle of the Bulge. Not a bad read at all.
