3 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Late summer 1944. German units are routed, fleeing from Normandy to the borders of Germanyand Holland. The Allies are now certain of victory and believe the war might be over by Christmas 1944. But they are faced with a series of bloody surprises. It begins in September with a daring British land campaign led by British Field Marshall Montgomery. Tens of thousands of British and American troops land near Arnhem, Nimwegen and Eindhoven on 17 September 1944. Their targets are the strategically vital bridges over the rivers Maas, Waal and Rhine, as they advance into the Ruhr region. The Germans consolidate their forces to provide resistance and the British military intelligence department had entirely failed to notice that there was an SS Tank regiment in the region. The British parachute troops hold the bridge at Arnheim against vastly superior German forces for five days. Bit by bit they are encircled, and final phase of the fighting is a bloody street battle. On 26. September 1944 the Battle of Arnhem is over. While the Americans are able to form a bridgehead at Nimwegen, the British suffer a disastrous defeat. But Hitler is triumphant. Arnhem is the first German "success" in the west since the Allies landed in Normandy. His illusion that final defeat can still somehow be avoided is given new impetus
