Great Battles, Prose: non-fiction, Militaria, arms & armour

This is the vivid account of how a brilliant plan turned into an epic tragedy.

This book tells the true story of the Battle of Arnhem which was fought in September 1944.

Nine days later, after some of the fiercest street-fighting of the war, 2000 paratroopers managed to escape to safety.
