Arnhem Airborne Assault 'Limited Edition'

Arnhem Airborne Assault 'Limited Edition'

Commemorating the 75th Anniversary of Operation Market Garden: 1944 – 2019

By September 1944 there was growing Allied optimism in France; having broken out of Normandy their armies were now pushing steadily west. Yet as the enemy fell back the Allies’ supply line was becoming dangerously stretched. Newly-promoted Field Marshal Montgomery therefore argued that these limited resources be concentrated into a single push into the Netherlands, aiming to turn the German flank. Eisenhower disagreed, preferring a broader advance towards the Rhine. But, as a compromise, he did give Montgomery their one available reserve, the First Allied Airborne Army, with which he could try and seize bridges in the Netherlands to allow for a dash to the Ruhr in an operation code-named Market Garden.

Joining artist Simon Smith in signing every print are two veterans who served with the Glider Pilot Regiment at Arnhem:
