Summary
  • "A historical account of Operation Varsity, the largest airborne invasion of World War II"--
  • March 24, 1945. More than two thousand Allied aircraft droned through a cloudless sky toward Germany, carrying 17,000 troops to be dropped, via parachute and glider, on the far banks of the Rhine River. Four hours later, after what was the war's largest airdrop, all major objectives had been seized. The war in Europe ended less than two months later. As the Third Reich began to implode, it was vital for Allied troops to have direct access into Germany to guarantee victory. The 17th Airborne secured that bridgehead over the River Rhine-- yet their story has until now been relegated to history's footnotes. Fenelon follows the 17th Airborne Division as they prepare for Operation Varsity, a campaign that would rival Normandy in scale. -- adapted from Amazon.com info
