More About This Textbook

Overview

In the fall of 1945, Allied commanders planned to land airborne divisions in an attempt to capture a series of bridges behind German lines, including the "bridge too far" at Arnhem. Geoffrey Powell, himself a veteran of the Arnhem operation, drew on conversations with many other survivors of the battle to write one of the most dramatic of all accounts of the battle.

    A New Perspective on this major battle of WWII

    I found this to be an excellent read as it shares a British perspective of this battle of the war. It almost would seem that the British felt this was by no means a failure but rather a personal perspective of the fight, dealing with the author's relationship with his fellow soldiers.

    A rare look into the Battle of Arnhem

    Quite simply, I consider this book a hidden gem in first-person accounts on World War II. Although "A Bridge Too Far" is the definitive narrative on Market-Garden and the Battle of Arnhem, this book does a wonderful job of detailing the battle at a more personal level. Many of the problems the British paratroopers had attacking, holding, and finally retreating from the Dutch city are carefully detailed by Powell. Going into excellent detail about the events of each day after his battalion landed, Powell takes the reader into the fog of war and his reactions to combat. These details are not just at the personal level, such as his hunger and discomfort, but about the battle. Powell documents the path his dwindling battalion takes through Heavedorp and Oosterbeek that other accounts leave out or briefly mention. These details create a vivid picture of Powell's experiences, and make the book hard to put down. I would call it a must-read for anyone interested in Arnhem or paratroopers in WWII.
