Can You Succeed Where Montgomery
By early September 1944, the Germans were in full retreat
with Wehrmacht units streaming back to the Fatherland in complete disarray.
However, German commanders were beginning to reorganize a defense line just as
the Allied advance stalled due to the lack of supplies. Montgomery argued that
a single attack should be on his line of advance through Holland and on to
Germany. His plan, code named "Market-Garden" called for an Allied Airborne
Army consisting of three Airborne Divisions to seize a series of five bridges
over a one hundred kilometer stretch through Holland.
Market-Garden '44 covers the epic airborne battle that
occurred in September 1944, when Montgomery gambled with 35,000 paratroppers in
a bid to cross the Rhine and bring an early end to the war against Germany.
Unfortunately, Arnhem was the resting spot of two battle weary SS Divisions,
and the ensuing combat was among the fiercest recorded during the war.
