This is latest of the well-respected Battleground series of books, and covers a number of aspects of the battle of Arnhem.
It concentrates on the landings and the desperate and legendary battle fought by the remnants of 1st Airborne Division in the town of Oosterbeek.
The book relies on both historical knowledge and anecdotes from veterans to bring to life the events of those fateful days of late September 1944.Have set the strategic scene on the opening chapter the guide suggests four separate tours around the area, one on foot and the others requiring a car.
They can all be completed in a full day, but are structured in such a way that visitors can make their own choice of how and where to visit.
