Overview

Hell's Highway is a history, most of which has never before been written. It is adventure recorded by those who lived it and put into context by an author who was also there. It is human drama on an enormous scale, told through the personal stories of 612 contributors of written and oral accounts of the Screaming Eagles' part in the attempt to liberate the Netherlands.

George Koskimaki is an expert in weaving together individual recollections to make a compelling and uniquely first hand account of the bravery and deprivations suffered by the troops, their hopes, fears, triumphs and tragedies as well as those of Dutch civilians caught up in the action.

There have been many books published on Operation Market Garden and there will surely be more. This book, however, gets to the heart of the action. The "big picture" which most histories paint, here is just the context for the real history on the ground.

Editorial Reviews

Book News
Koskimaki, a World War II veteran who parachuted into Normandy during the D-Day invasion with the 101st Airborne Division, offers a "You were there" account of the 101st's participation in the war's Holland Campaign in 1944. The author created his account from both oral and written recollections of soldiers who were involved in the campaign to give a rare perspective on what war was really like on the ground. "
Journal of America's Military Past
One might think that a book of this length would drag on because of the seemingly endless battle situations covered and documented. This is not the case with Hell's Highway and its companion volumes. The reader is carried along with the troops with an intensity that is as good as most movies. It is a study of humans under the greatest pressure responding as only the best can. It gives the reader plenty to think about and reflect upon for some time afterward. This reviewer would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in WWII.

    A Must for World War II Fans!

    This book is great! I can't stand the little $8 books as I am 46 and need reading glasses, so I have been waiting for a full size copy for years!
    There are three in this series. All Three is a must read!!!

    Barnes&Noble is great! I am in South Korea and via USPS Priority mail my books arrive with 10 days each time!
