Here’s the story of American hero General Tony McAuliffe (1898–1975) who while defending Bastogne, Belgium, during the famous ‘Battle of the Bulge’ in World War II is known for his one-word reply when the Nazi’s demanded his surrender. Culled from hundreds of battle accounts, official documents and various interviews and articles throughout the years, ‘Nuts!’ tells the story of McAuliffe’s unique 37 year career. Told by Author Tom McAuliffe, who is a relative of the late General, as well as his Nephew Ken McAuliffe, the General and his men overcame being surrounded and on the road to annihilation. They were truly the best of ‘The Greatest Generation’. This is not only their gritty story of that fateful Christmas week when the outcome of the war, and our freedom, lay in the balance, it is also about 35 plus years on active duty and the amazing events McAuliffe was a part of. ’Nuts!’ is a special read for any student of Courage and World War II.
