ARNHEM -THE BATTLE OF THE BRIDGES

SIR ANTONY BEEVOR

1.00pm The Astor Theatre, Deal

On 17 September 1944, General Kurt Student, the founder of Nazi Germany’s parachute forces, heard the growing roar of aero engines. He went out onto his balcony above the flat landscape of southern Holland to watch the air armada of Dakotas and gliders, carrying the British 1st Airborne and the American 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions. He gazed up in envy at this massive demonstration of paratroop power.

 

Operation Market Garden, the plan to end the war by capturing the bridges leading to Arnhem on the Lower Rhine was a bold concept. But could it ever have worked? The cost of failure was horrendous, above all for the Dutch who risked everything to help. German reprisals were pitiless and cruel, and lasted until the end of the war.

 

The British fascination for heroic failure has clouded the story of Arnhem in myths. Antony Beevor, using often overlooked sources from Dutch, British, American, Polish and German archives, has reconstructed the terrible reality of the fighting.
