A great deal has been written about Arnhem and the massive Airborne drop of a bridge too far over the years since 1944. The book is printed in both English and Dutch on alternative pages. It maintains a focus on the immediate impact of the airborne forces on the local Dutch people and the horrors of war introduced into a Dutch town already hit by occupation and shortages of food. It is written by the Dutch and copes sympathetically with the plight of the allied forces as they are slowly defeated by an unexpectedly better equipped German Army. It is copiously illustrated. The value is in the emphasis on the Dutch experience. It is produced by the Gemeentearchief Arnhem (Arnhem Archive)
