5.0 out of 5 stars One of the old classics
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Hampered drop...
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.

This review is from: Arnhem 1944: Operation Market Garden (Osprey Campaign S.) (Osprey Military Campaign) (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.

Purchased to assist my son on his 'A' level project - judging by the number of tabs throughout the book, it's been helpful!

Concise and very good short reference guide if you want a brief insight into a particular point of ww2 before maybe studying it in depth.
