It certainly fired my imagination back then
Mr Whiting's typical style - no maps, exciting narrative woven with many individual accounts, photos which may or may not relate to the events described.
Mr Whiting evidently interviewed Peiper. Shame he didnt cover more ground and in more detail - that could have been a really interesting book in itself - it would have sold huge volumes.
As one gains more knowledge on the subject matter, the book becomes less satisfactory - the lack of maps challenges the imagination; as one tries to get a better picture from other sources it becomes clear that he has cut and pasted from numerous sources.
There are quite a few newer books which have really tried to do a thorough job on KGP and succeeded - Reynolds, Wijers, After the Battle. And there are the older marvellous sources like The Damned Engineers.
There are also some great books in french published by local historians - Stavelot by Hubert Laby is magnificent imho
During the Nuremberg trials Lt. Virgil Lary positively identified Pvt George Fleps as having shot GIs before any escape attempts were made.
The fact that "reader" uses the German expression "amis" tells me he is probably a former Wermacht soldior, who is trying to falsify the past.
Even 60 years later, there are those who cannot accept responsiblity for their terrible crimes.
