The Longest Battle
September 1944 to February 1945
From Aachen to the Roer and Across

By Harry Yeide

On 12 September 1944 an American patrol from the 3rd Armored Division's Task Force Doan entered Germany and reached a point within ten miles of the Roer River. Little did anyone realize that this would prove to be the beginning of America's longest battle. The Longest Battle is the first book-length history of the crucial Roer River campaign. It brings these hard fought battles to life as the author intimately relates the ebb and flow of the combat that ultimately broke the back of the Wehrmacht in the West.
