166 b/w photos, 16 color plates Operation Market Garden was Field Marshal Montogomery's brainchild. The plan was to launch airborne troops to seize bridges across waterways in southern Holland, including the Lower Rhine at Arnhem, to link up with British armor for a push to threaten the German industrial heartland of the Ruhr. The airborne forces were dropped eight miles west of Arnhem, where the II. SS-Panzer-Korps was recuperationg at that time. The German armor and infantry units of the II. SS-Panzer-Korps fought well, and the whole operation culminated in an allied defeat in the Arnhem sector. The Dutch author Marcel Zwarts spent a long time researching the German armor units (mainly 9.SS-Panzer-Division Hohenstaufen and 10.SS-Panzer-Division Frundsberg) that took part in the battle at Arnhem. Many photos in the book are gathered from private archives and never before published. The book is divided up per unit, each being further arranged in sequence, time and location. The well researched information provides that readers with an insight ofhte fighting from both sides.
