Like the other books in the Holts' acclaimed Battlefield Guide Series (see inside front cover for details) this is much more than just a guidebook. It charts in fascinating detail what happened at each recommended stop and brings alive, with cameos and personal recollections, the dramatic events of September 1944.

It is the very first detailed guide to chart the entire MARKET-GARDEN Corridor - from Leopoldsburg in Belgium and over the important bridges at the Scheldt-Maas Canal, the Wilhelmina Canal, the Zuid Willemsvaart Canal, the Maas and the Waal to the Bridge at Arnhem over the Lower Rhine - the 'Bridge Too Far'.

There are stories of gallantry, despair, humour, fear and dogged persistence

- here was a hidden execution ground and cemetery in Belgium
- here Pfc Joe Mann threw himself onto a grenade to save his buddies
- here the 504th PIR made the daring crossing over the Waal
- here was Diogenes, the Germans' menacing secret bunker
- here twin brothers of the British Airborne were killed together
- here Colonel Johnny Frost clung on for 4 desperate days
