"En septembre 1944, les Forces Alliées en Europe sous le commandement du général Eisenhower essaient de trouver un moyen de finir la guerre au plus tôt, sachant que l'allongement des lignes de ravitaillement depuis la Normandie rend difficile la poursuite de l'avancée vers l'Allemagne. L'opération Market Garden, conçue par le général anglais Montgomery, tente un coup d'audace sans précédent : parachuter plusieurs divisions aéroportées britanniques et américaines derrière les lignes allemandes, afin de capturer plusieurs ponts stratégiques qui permettront aux troupes terrestres de franchir le Rhin et de pénétrer directement en Allemagne. L'attaque combinée des forces aéroportées (Market) et du XXXe corps blindé britannique (Garden) doit permettre de percer le front sur une profondeur de 100 km, et d'atteindre la ville d'Arnhem, aux Pays-Bas, située sur la rive du Rhin, derrière le troisième pont à prendre. L'opération doit permettre de finir la guerre avant Noël 1944. Mais Montgomery n'a-t-il pas visé un pont trop loin ?"--Site wikipédia.org, consulté le 25 janvier 2017
