Bridge Too Far: Market Garden

Next Event Date: October 18-19, 2014




1000hrs, at airfields all across southern England, American and British
paratroopers boarded C-47 aircraft.  In just a few hours they were due
to be dropped into three drop zones, Eindhoven, Nijmegen and Arnhem.
Following the insertions would come ground forces which would drive
north to secure a route connecting those towns and a gateway into the
German heartland.

 Will this mission fail, as it did back in 1944, or will the Polish Airborne
get an opportunity to sway the battle by being dropped sooner?  Will
the briefcase with the Allied Battle Plan fall into Germans hands, or will
the Germans struggle to figure things out?
