MAJOR & MRS HOLT'S BATTLEFIELD GUIDE-BOOK TO ARNHEM & OPERATION MARKET-GARDEN
The Bridge Too Far
'Without doubt it is the finest overall account and guide to the battles that led up to the Arnhem Operation'
Hon Sec Arnhem 1944 Veterans Club
On 17 September 1944 the British 1st Airborne Division & the American 82nd & 101st Airborne Divisions began Operation Market-Garden. British XXX Corps tanks from Belgium were planned to advance over five Dutch bridges across major rivers. The furthest away, 100km from the start, was the bridge at Arnhem. The Paras took four bridges but not the fifth.
Our book, Major & Mrs Holt's Battlefield Guide to Operation Market Garden, tells the whole story.
