The race by Montgomery's ground forces, principally 30 (British) Corps, to relieve the US & UK airborne troops at Nijmegen and Arnhem respectively has been the subject of fierce controversy since that dramatic summer of 1944. In the first of three books covering the Battles on the road to Arnhem, experienced author and tourguide, Tim Saunders, describes the US 82nd Airborne Division's daring seizure of the Grave Bridge and their battles for the Grossbeck Heights, and the struggle for the vital Nijmegen Bridge. At the same time he covers the Guards Armoured Division's desperate efforts to link up on the ground. This is a thrilling story of a major chapter in the Allie's advance in 1944.
