This book outlines and details Operation Market Garden, an Allied attempt during World War Two to break through German lines into occupied Netherlands. The 1944 battle began at Arnhem and became the greatest airborne operation of the war. Field Marshall Sir Bernard Montgomery proposed the operation to bring about the end of the war by dropping American and British forces behind German lines to capture the crucial bridge across the Thine at Arnhem. Sadly, the daring and grandiose operation ended in bitter defeat for the Allies costing the Allies twice as many casualties as D-Day.
