Kemps research is thorough and his presentation clear and generally concise. The author is able to cover this largely neglected (from popular literature anyhow) series of engagements that pitted Pattons Third against an entrenched battered, but yet unbeaten, Wehrmacht, in the Metz area in just over 230 pp.

Kemp presents a lucid treatise of how and why the Third Army got involved in battle so unsuited to Pattons temperament, and further how Patton coped with this tactically. The reader is left with a clear picture of attrition warfare at its worst- although generally outnumbering the Germans, Pattons forces were far from what would dogmatically be considered appropriate strength to take on fixed defenses. Those defenses, the Metz fortresses (Metz and associated series of fortifications), while not necessarily modern were nearly as effective in 1944 as 1000 years earlier!--Mannie Liscum
