In this new study of the Battle for Arnhem, Alan Cooper focuses on the role of the re-supply aircraft of the RAF. Operation Market Garden relied on being re-supplied by air, but it was a costly undertaking resulting in the loss of 309 aircrew, 79 air despatchers and 107 aircraft. Day-by-day, from 17 September 1944 to 25 September, this book tells the story of the RAF's role at Arnhem, and ends with details of its awards and casualties.
