Volume 2 of this two-volume history of Operation "Market-Garden"
continues the story as XXX Corps links up with the 82nd Airborne at Nijmegen
which leads to the dramatic and spectacular capture of the vital bridges
there over the Waal river. But at Arnhem the tide of battle has already turned.
The main force of lst Airborne is thrown back to the Oosterbeek perimeter,
leaving John Frost's isolated force at the road bridge to fight it out till
the end. As the Polish Brigade is dropped south of the Rhine, and the ground
army desperately tries to relieve the beleaguered British paras, down in the
south the Germans launch repeated attacks on the narrow corridor in an attempt
to cut the Allied supply artery. As savage battles rage for possession
of "Hell's Highway", the airborne battle is lost and on September 26 the
survivors of lst Airborne are evacuated back across the Rhine.
