Lasted until the end of the war  Antony Beevor using often overlooked sources from Dutch American British Polish and German archives has reconstructed the terrible reality of the fighting which General Student called The Last German Victory YetThe Battle of Arnhem written with Beevor's inimitable style and gripping narrative is about much than a single dramatic battle it looks into the very heart of w. Not Beevor s best This multi phase operation is not easy to follow in these pages And the maps are terrible Full of detail that is not in the text Full of military jargon so that an long sentence about an aspect of the battle is undecipherable to a non military reader All those technical references to euipment firepower etc are not needed

This is without uestion the absolute worst nightmare rendition of of World war two history ever submitted for either cogent research or descriptive proseThis book is the absolute nadir of describing any history of battle ever written I read every page of the disorganized drivel I just paid for with hopes the author would eventually attempt to clairify the reality of this great engagement Sure the author must have undertaken a Herculean effort to pile in disconnected prose historical seuencing and sheer avoidance of cartographic references But to what cause Absolute obfuscationReferences to battlefield charts are unfathomable Don t waste a penny of your money or a minute of your time It s simply an awful disservice to a heroic loss

    In mid September 1944, the Allies launched a bold plan in hopes of ending the war in Europe by Christmas. Utilizing both airborne and land forces, the plan was to capture the bridges over the Rhine and then sweep directly into Germany.

    With the battle of Arnhem, Anthony Beevor presents a new account of the disastrous operation Market Garden. The facts are well established and known by many who saw the movie “a bridge too far”.
