In the autumn of 1944 it was clear to the Allies that the river Rhine was an obstacle that had to be overcome if they were to gain access to Germany's capital city. Lloyd Clark examines Eisenhower's arbitration between the rival strategies of Montgomery and Patton, describes how the ambitious Market Garden operation broke down and considers the lessons Montgomery had learned when he organized a second airborne assault - Plunder Varsity - a few months later.
