Operation Market Garden, September 1944: The Allies attempt to capture several strategically important bridges in the Netherlands in the hope of breaking the German lines. However, mismanagement and poor planning result in its failure.
As the director of "The Battle for the Battle of Britain" I was pleased to read the mainly favorable review. It was the beginning of my career and holds many happy memories for me. The review mentions how so many of the German "advisers" were still only middle aged. Being very young myself I didn't truly appreciate how close I was to a still recent history. It was 1968 not 1972 as mentioned. I do have one vivid memory of being in a darkened lounge of a huge Seville hotel where some very old German Luftwaffe pilots were watching a film of their propaganda of the bombing of British airfields and calling out the airfields names in joy as they were bombed! Where can I buy a copy? There was an edition which I did a commentary for some years back and was included with the feature but I can't find it anywhere. Thanks for any help. Paul Annett.
