Description
After Normandy, the most spectacular Allied offensive in the European theater of World War II was Operation Market Garden, which saw three divisions of paratroopers dropped behind German lines, to be joined by massive armored columns breaking through the front. The objective was to seize a crossing over the Rhine to flank the heartland of the Third Reich and force a quick end to the war, but the British 1st Airborne was nearly wiped out, the American 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions were tied down for months in vicious fighting, and the armored columns were foiled by improvisational German defenses. In this "smooth, concise account of the battle's major phases and turning points, well spiced with vignettes from the tactical level" (World War II Magazine), David Bennett describes the totality of the campaign, its failures, and its remarkable successes.
