Airborne operations in Europe

This is an analysis of the three major airborne operations in northwestern Europe during World War II. Operations Neptune (D-Day), Market (Arnhem landing) and Varsity (Rhine crossing) are all covered in detail with statistical analyses of troops and aircraft/gliders involved.

It presents a first class picture of the three operations, and shows why they were planned and how they were carried out. In all cases there is an account of post-drop operations on the ground.

This account supplements the detail given in our other publications on these three drops: "D-Day I Corps", "Operation Market Garden" and "Battlefield Tour: Operation Varsity".

Well illustrated.

Highly recommended.
