Of the ten thousand soldiers who fought at Arnhem in 1944, fewer than two
thousand survived, yet out of the carnage came heroism and sacrifice and a
fellow-feeling between enemies. These forces form the basis of this novel,
which tells the story of a wounded paratrooper who lay among the dying in a
Dutch hospital, only to find himself transformed by a chance encounter and
bound to Arnhem ever after.
