The Devil's Birthday by Geoffrey Powell
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


First published in 1984 to mark the 40th anniversary of "Operation Market Garden", this book tells the story of the doomed Allied attempt to seize three major river crossings (including the "bridge too far" at Arnhem) and thus secure a back door into Germany, effectively shortening the war. This edition has corrections, additions and amendments by the author, who was awarded the Military Cross for gallantry during the Arnhem battles, where he commanded a company and, later, a composite group that included the remnants of his entire battalion. He escaped back over the Lower Rhine with the survivors of British 1st Airborne Division. Geoffrey Powell's other books include "Suez: the Double War" (written with Roy Fullick) and "Plumer: the Soldier's General".
