Lloyd Clark Å 9 Free read Read Ï E-book, or Kindle E-pub Å Lloyd Clark Arnhem: Jumping the Rhine 1944 & 1945 Summary ß 9 An insightful and gripping account of the largest airborne operation in history In September 1944 the river Rhine was a serious barrier to the advancing Allied armies in the West who were intent on charging Berlin and ending the war Field. Loyd Clark s Arnhem is the book currently holding prime position as the set text on the famous infamous Operation Market Garden and it s not bad but as someone who s read an awful lot of books on this battle it s not that good eitherClark relies on very familiar sources Stephen Ambrose s Band of Brothers and Roy Uruhart s Arnhem and though he uotes from the late Robin Neillands fascinating The Battle for the Rhine 1944 he does not appear to have read it Clark does not even discuss Neillands central contention that the critical full stop of Market Garden was at Nijmegen due to a failure by the US forces to grab the bridge necessitating XXX Corps having to stop and help them which is disappointing Worse Clark chooses to print unchallenged the view that the Brits effectively sat down for a cup of darjeeling after the Nijmegen Bridge was taken instead of pressing on to Arnhem to relieve the hard pressed Ist Airborne Division Neillands argues that the tank forces were spread all over the town helping the US 82nd Aiborne when the bridge was finally seized by British Shermans which explains the pause unuestioned by the Americans until post war memoirs Neillands might be wrong but from this book you would not even know there was a debateClark also indulges in rather tired Monty bashing Yes Montgomery was a difficult man but he undoubtedly knew what he was about Clark uotes rightly from Charles B McDonald Official US Army historian and junior officer in 1944 stating that the infantrymen didn t care who was in charge just that the war was over and they got home but fails to recognise that Montgomery s insistence on the Ruhr as the key to German capitulation was correct Monty was a pain detestable as Neillands uoted in this book says but so what If he had been fully backed with proper supplies and troopsthen the war could have been ended uicker which matters considering how many Jews were sent to death camps in the last few months of the Nazi regime Eisenhower for all his post war glow allowed vital supplies to head towards Patton who was not breaking into such a vital area For that the supreme commander has a lot to answer forThe book is lucid and an easy read but if you know anything about the strategic situation in September 1944 curiously one dimensional for a lecturer from Sandhurst He concludes the air plan for Arnhem was at fault which is so obvious that it comes across as staleI have no doubt there will be a better comprehensive book on Arnhem out before too long but as things stand this is about the best around if you can t face the broad sweep inaccuracies of Cornelius Ryan s A Bridge Too Far or the slightly anoraky painfully detailed Arnhem 1944 by Martin Middlebrook I was a bit disappointed though and would recommend the Neillands book to everyone It s not all about Arnhem but the chapters dealing with Market Garden are the freshest words on the battle written in decades
