A Classic!!!! Both the book which was later made into a movie. This book tells of the Allied effort to end the war in September 1944 by a joint airborne force of American and British paratroopers dropped behind enemy lines to capture a crucial bridge across the Rhine in Arnhem. Operation Market Garden as it was called, Was the largest armada of troop-carrying aircraft ever assembled and cost the Allies nearly twice as many casualties as D-Day.
