Five stars, definitely,
This review is from: Arnhem 1944: The Airborne Battle, 17-26 September (Penguin history) (Paperback)
Of all the books about Arnhem from the Airborne perspective this is the best. It's the clearest, the most thorough, and it's stuffed with the most brilliant eyewitness anecdotes. If you want the German perspective read It Never Snows In September; if you want the grit and the gore read Zeno's The Cauldron or Geoffrey Powell's Men At Arnhem. But for your basic groundwork, Middlebrook's your man. It was a very complicated battle and he makes it comprehensible.
