An Interview with Christer Bergstrom on his new release:
Why did you decide to write this book? What prompted you to put this story down on paper?
I had planned it for many years, probably for about 20 years. What prompted me to put finally together all the material I had collected into a book was when I some years ago read an article about the Battle of the Bulge in a Swedish military history magazine, and I got so sick at seeing the same old myths being repeated again.
How much research did you do for the book? Can you give us some tips on this?
Incredibly much, for many, many years. Having read everything about the subject, I visited all the relevant archives. I also made interviews with lots of veterans, and through them I received much material that is not available in the official archives.
What do you like most about your book? Why should we read it?
This is an absolutely neutral account (written by a Swede), giving an equal attention to both sides in this epic battle. I have found incredibly much and hitherto unknown information which gives an entirely new image of this battle, the Battle of the Bulge.
