This is the ultimate book on Operation Market Garden, by internationally highly acclaimed military historian Christer Bergström. The indepth research made by the author has resulted in many myths and misconceptions being convincingly dispelled, backed up by detailed source notes. . In fact, these two volumes form a completely new image of the battle in the Netherlands in the autumn of 1944. It was Cornelius Ryan who in 1974 put Market Garden so to say on the map. However, it is obvious that he had no time to go through his vast collection of first-hand material on Market Garden before he so sadly passed away that same year. This is a mission that Christer Bergström has taken upon himself. A torrent of new books about Market Garden has been published since 1974, and many of its authors – all included – have done meritorious work in producing new research. But it appears quite obvious that nobody has previously tried to go through The Cornelius Ryan Collection in its entirety in order to publish to the public the important pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that Ryan produced but was never able to use in his book. But now it has been done, for the first time, in this book by Christer Bergström. Bergström has made a painstaking research work for several years, interviewing veterans and others who participated or witnessed the battle. He has gone through all relevant documents in all relevant archives in the UK, the USA, Germany and the Netherlands, and that material forms the basis of his book.
”Well-written, captivating and detailed describes the brutal reality of war, which nevertheless does not have any negative impact on the dramatic description. A most exciting reading experience.” – Svensk Bibliotekstjänst (Library Serice), on Volume 1.
"Volume One of Arnhem 1944 is a solid hit. Christer Bergström gets high marks for original research, comprehensive orders of battle, and interactive QR codes that immerse the reader into the heat of battle. This puts a whole new face on Market-Garden." - Andy Nunez, editor of Against the Odds Magazine.
