The Battle for the Bridges, 1944
Broschiertes Buch
The Sunday Times #1 Bestseller The great airborne battle for the bridges in 1944 by Britain´s Number One bestselling historian and author of the classic Stalingrad ´Our greatest chronicler of the Second World War . . . his fans will love it´ - Robert Fox, Evening Standard ´The eye for telling detail which we have come to expect from Antony Beevor. . . this time, though, he turns his brilliance as a military historian to a subject not just of defeat, but dunderhead stupidity´ Daily Mail On 17 September 1944, General Kurt Student, the founder of Nazi Germany´s parachute forces, heard the growing roar of aeroplane engines.

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 with 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, which General Student himself called ´The Last German Victory´. Yet this book, written in Beevor´s inimitable and gripping narrative style, is about much more than a single, dramatic battle. It looks into the very heart of war. ´In Beevor´s hands, Arnhem becomes a study of national character´ - Ben Macintyre, The Times´Superb book, tirelessly researched and beautifully...
