This is the ultimate book on Operation Market Garden, by internationally highly acclaimed military historian Christer Bergstrm.
The comprehensive research made by the author has resulted in many myths and misconceptions being convincingly dispelled, backed up by detailed source notes. . In fact, these two volumes form a completely new image of the battle in the Netherlands in the autumn of 1944.
It was Cornelius Ryan who in 1974 put Market Garden so to say on the map. However, it is obvious that he had no time to go through his vast collection of first-hand material on Market Garden before he so sadly passed away that same year. This is a mission that Christer Bergstrm has taken upon himself. A torrent of new books about Market Garden has been published since 1974, and many of its authors all included have done meritorious work in producing new research.
