Customer Review

on 8 March 2004
An absolute must for informing yourself about this famous battle. Kershaw was a British Army officer stationed in West Germany, charged with tactically assessing the German ability to reform and resist an overwhelming allied airborne attack on the strategically vital Rhine bridges.
The lessons for such a battle in 1980s NATO planning are obvious, and Kershaw's is a spellbinding account which is detailed but never dry. The German ability to improvise units and fight with great determination so very quickly gave the lightly armed airborne units a sever mauling.
Also chilling is the description of the Dutch SS units who fought hard as their cause seemed at its very nadir...
Outstanding military history which seems to confirm Max Hasting's findings in 'Overlord' about some allied unit's hesitance and lack of drive: who wants to be the last 'Citizen Soldier' to die to liberate Europe?
