illerymen in support of both Operation Market and Operation Garden.The German viewpoint is covered by the contemporary newspaper account translated from the pages of “The Westkurier”. The report was filed by war reporter Erwin Kirchhof and provides a powerful insight into the events of the battle as filtered through the prism of Goebbels’ propaganda machine.Two extracts from the official accounts of the 101st Airborne and 82nd Airborne Divisions give an indication of the strong conviction still held in the US camp that the operation had been a complete success.Finally, an excerpt from the official account of the British First and Sixth Airborne Divisions, shows the British point of view of the battle of Arnhem, making this a compulsive purchase for all Second World War enthusiasts.
