Harry Yeide and Mark Stout s First to the Rhine provides a deeply factual and objective history of one of the lesser known aspects of the War in Europe the 6th Army Group s campaign from the invasion of Southern France through VE Day. Yeide and Stout seek to redress the short shrift typically given to this important aspect of the war, especially given the logistic and strategic importance of Marseilles and the Rhone River valley...Furthermore, the authors use the larger setting of the 6th Army Group s operations to provide the backdrop for some of the war s most notable episodes, particularly the personal experiences and exploits of men such as Audie Murphy, the most decorated soldier of the war.Neither the French nor the American contributions to the campaigns are neglected and the authors even provide ample information on the German dispositions, plans, and personalities that figured prominently in the campaigns as well...While meticulously researched, the authors do not get bogged down in unnecessary details; Yeide and Stout use a crisp narrative style that takes readers into the strategic and operational command decisions and yet also makes them feel the agonies and sacrifices endured by the common soldiers of both sides...First to the Rhine fills a long-felt void in the European Theater s operational histories and proves valuable to both the casual historical reader and the serious student of military history. --Military review
