Operation Market Garden was the name given to the US, UK and Polish airborne assault on the Arnhem, Nijmegen and Eindhoven bridges and the ill-fated 30 Corps advance to relieve the hard-pressed paras. While everyone knows that Arnhem was 'a bridge too far', few understand the true reasons for the catastrophic failure to link up. There have been numerous guide books to the fighting around Arnhem in particular, but this is the first to cover the Operation as a whole.NEW, FULLY UPDATED EDITION PACKAGED WITH A FREE, FULL COLOUR FOLD-OUT MAPAbout the Author:
Major and Mrs Holt need little introduction. Not only did they pioneer the concept of battlefield touring, building up the Company that still bears their name but they have written numerous books which include their unrivalled Leo Cooper guidebooks to the Somme, Ypres, Normandy and Gallipoli. Market Garden is the fifth in this hugely successful series. Other works include My Boy Jack and The Better 'Ole, their life of the world famous cartoonist Baimsfather. They live at Sandwich, Kent.
