Osprey's examination of 'Market Garden, ' one of the most audacious, and ultimately controversial, operations of World War II (1939-1945). It was a joint penetration, by an armoured column and a large-scale airborne drop, to punch a decisive hole in the German defences. If it had succeeeded, the war could have ended in 1944. Yet the two-pronged attack failed in its objectives. This book details how, instead of being relieved after 48 hours as expected, British paratroopers were cut off for nine days. Facing two unexpected SS Panzer divisions the Allies were eventually evacuated across the Rhine after putting up an incredible fight: of the 10,000 men involved less than 2,000 survived.

Arnhem 1944 ,Operation "Market Garden"is an interesting book.Although it is only 96 pages long it seems to cover a lot.It looks at both the British and German perspective and as such gives a well rounded account of the battle that took place at Arnhem.It contains some helpful maps as well as some black and white photos.The highlight for me is the colour painted pictures which if you look closely are the exact poses of some 1/35 British Para figures available from Verlinden.Yes i would recommend this book.
