Enjoyed some of the background regarding the decision and the personalities behind the decisions made on the battlefield. The author add more persepctive, feeling and flavor to the story by describing events that happened throughout the European theater, and not just on the local battlefield. The part about the V-2 attacks on Antwerp were very good.
The author does not pronounce "Nijmegen" correctly; and at first, I was wondering what he was trying to say. Since I have studied and visited the battlefield were Market-Garden took place, I was able to figure it out.
Ask any Dutchman how to pronounce it; I cringed everytime the author said it.
Nye (like Bill Nye) - may - chen (soft "ch" from the back of the throat, or a hard "ken" is acceptable)
