The greatest airborne operation in history commenced on 17 September 1944.

The ferocious and gallant actions in Arnhem and Oosterbeek have fascinated historians and students ever since.

Supported by battle maps, timelines, troop diagrams as well as touring guides - this is the perfect companion for the armchair historian or the intrepid battlefield traveller. 70 b/w illustrations 5 maps
