Antony Beevor is back with a major new history of Arnhem : the plan to end the war by capturing the bridges leading to the Lower Rhine and beyond. Codenamed Operation Market Garden and famously portrayed in the film A Bridge Too Far (starring Anthony Hopkins, Dirk Bogarde et al) the plan was a bold concept. But could it ever have worked? In this unmissable talk Antony Beevor, drawing on important new sources will reconstruct the terrible reality of the fighting, described by General Student as ‘The Last German Victory‘.
