Much like D-Day, 1944's Operation Market-Garden was a complex struggle that is best recounted in the words of the participants. This book draws on many individual soldiers and airmen's narratives to tell the story of the ongoing fight to keep "Hell's Highway" open to relieve 1st Airborne at Arnhem, and the brave attempts to re-supply them from the air. Here are tales of the Dutch housewife known as the "Angel of Arnhem" and the acts of chivalry that existed on both sides, even among such battle-hardened units as the SS Panzer Grenadiers.
