Hell’s Highway, Operation Market Garden

KB0144

The presenters provide a graphic account of the ground troops battle towards Arnhem and provide fresh insights into what was an operation that did much to advance the Allies dash for victory. There were mistakes, there was bad luck, there was heroic action and there were successes. That Market Garden came so close to achieving its objectives justified the attempt.

B1733

The author has researched a fascinating and unusual story from World War Two. The battles, politics and technology of the 1939-1945 War have been covered by a mountain of books and miles of film, but almost no attention has been paid to one area that is now becoming important as families try to trace the stories and end of relatives who fought in a global conflict that saw combatants fighting in almost every kind of climatic condition and almost every type of terrain.
