7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Gisli Jokull Gislason VINE VOICE on 30 Mar. 2009
Format: Paperback
This book gives very good coverage of Operation Market Garden, including the American drop zones and the advance of XXX Corps. Good coverage is also given of the British 1st Division and the battle of Arnhem but the book would be more accurately called Market Garden.

Overall this is one of the good old Osprey books with a wide coverage and good presentation. Today I expect Osprey would break it up into 3 parts to sell more books so this book is a bargin.

For anyone who thinks a Bridge Too Far covers Market Garden well I encourage to buy this book and learn a few different opinions. This book reads truer to me at least.

Good book, Osprey at its best.

Format: Paperback
If you want a basic overview then this is a useful book. Good narrative and easy to read. Let down as the OB, which I brought the book for, was not very detailed - compared with other Osprey campaign publications.

Never read an Osprey book before, and I found this very interesting if a little confusing. I'm not sure if that's a criticism of the writing style, or a comment on the nature of this battle.
