Once the Allies had gained a foothold in Europe in 1944, there were high hopes of a rapid advance, but determined German defence bogged General Montgomery down at Caen. With the goal of a swift route to Germany, Monty conceived a plan to seize eight key bridges in Holland and race into Germany from the north. This detailed history takes up the story from immediately after the Normandy invasion and explores the planning, execution and aftermath of Operation Market Garden.
