Summary, etc.:
September 17, 1944, southern Holland. General Kurt Student, the founder of Nazi Germany's parachute forces, heard the groaning roar of airplane engines. From his balcony he watched an air armada of C-47 Skytrains and gliders, carrying the legendary American 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions and the British 1st Airborne Division. Operation Market Garden, the plan to end the war by capturing the bridges leading to the Lower Rhine and beyond, was a bold concept, but could it have ever worked? The cost of failure was horrendous; German reprisals against the Dutch were pitiless and cruel, and lasted until the end of the war. Beevor has reconstructed the terrible reality of the fighting-- and in doing so looks into the very heart of war. -- adapted from publisher info
