In September 1944, having sped through France and Belgium, Montgomery sought to race into Germany and end the war by Christmas. And failed. Operation Market Garden would drop Allied troops into The Netherlands to secure key bridges across the Rhine along the path of advance. Britain's bestselling historian creates a gripping narrative that shows why the battle was fought and lost.
Antony Beevor is the author of Crete: The Battle and the Resistance (Runciman Prize), Stalingrad (Samuel Johnson Prize, Wolfson Prize for History and Hawthornden Prize), Berlin: The Downfall, The Battle for Spain (Premio La Vanguardia), D-Day: The Battle for Normandy (Prix Henry Malherbe and the RUSI Westminster Medal), The Second World War, and Ardennes 1944 (Prix Médicis shortlist). The number one bestselling historian in Britain, Beevor's books have appeared in thirty-two languages and have sold just over seven million copies. A former chairman of the Society of Authors, he has received a number of honorary doctorates. He is also a visiting professor at the University of Kent and an Honorary Fellow of King's College, London. He was knighted in 2017.
