Rhine Crossing - Operations Plunder and Varsity Paperback / softback
By Spring 1945, with the Russians closing fast on Berlin from the East, the US and British Armies of Patton and Montgomery were faced with one major hurdle, the Rhine.
Heavily defended by the Nazis, this obstacle would only be crossed by a massive operation requiring meticulous planning and bold execution.The resulting operation involving 29 divisions was outstandingly successful.
This book follows the river crossings by 30th and 79th US Divisions, codenamed Operation FLASHPOINT and the airdrop by 17th US Airborne Division (VARSITY).
While covering quite different sectors, this book can be read in conjunction with its sister volumes Operation Varsity" and "Operation Plunder"
