Recollections of War: Operation Market Garden Reprise

        Last year was the 70th Anniversary of Operation Market Garden, the heroic yet disastrous attempt to end WWII in one stroke by striking deep into German held territory in Holland.  I posted a couple articles commemorating that event in September 2014, and share them with you again on the anniversary of the ill-fated operation.

              An essay explaining the major points of the operation and how and why it failed.

              A post focusing on the airborne troops with a short clip from the movie 'A Bridge Too Far'.
