Hell's Highway: The True Story of the 101st Airborne Division During Operation Market Garden, September 17-25, 1944

Overview

On September 17, 1944, in broad daylight, the Allies launched the largest airborne operation ever conducted. The objective: to secure a road in Nazi-occupied Holland and a bridge across the Rhine for ground troops to advance into Germany . . . and to end the war by Christmas. For the 101st Airborne, charged with seizing key bridges, that road became known as Hells Highway, and it saw what may have been the most savagely fought single action in the divisions history.

Overview

On September 17, 1944, in broad daylight, the Allies launched the largest airborne operation ever conducted. The objective: to secure a road in Nazi-occupied Holland and a bridge across the Rhine for ground troops to advance into Germany . . . and to end the war by Christmas. For the 101st Airborne, charged with seizing key bridges, that road became known as Hells Highway, and it saw what may have been the most savagely fought single action in the divisions history.

This book tells the story of that battle at its most desperate, and the Screaming Eagles of the 101st Airborne at their most courageous. A concise, authoritative account of the bold but ultimately unsuccessful push across the Rhine, this book recounts some of the most dramatic combat of World War II. Published in conjunction with Gearbox Softwares Brothers in Arms: Hells Highway, it also features selected screen shots from the game, reenactor action, and a wealth of maps and period archival photographs that bring Hells Highway to harrowing life.
