The British fascination with heroic failure has clouded the story of Arnhem in myths. Antony Beevor, using often overlooked sources from Dutch, British, American, Polish and German archives, has reconstructed the terrible reality of the fighting, which General Student himself called ‘The Last German Victory’. Yet this work, written in Beevor’s inimitable and gripping narrative style, is about much more than a single, dramatic battle. It looks into the very heart of war.
