The operation was split into two sub-operations which when combined gives the operation its name. Market refers to the airborne forces of the First Allied Airborne Army, who would drop behind German lines and seize a number of bridges. The final bridge being Arnhem Road Bridge which crossed the Rhine.

Feb 03,  · It is just one of many markers erected throughout the area where the Battle of Arnhem / Oosterbeek took place. The ‘Johnny Frost Bridge’ at Arnhem The road bridge at Arnhem across the Rhine was the final Allied objective of Operation Market Garden which began on 17 September

During my search about Operation Market Garden, I found this… Albie Gotze was there and he gave a lecture on his experience as a Typhoon pilot. This is where I found it. This provided for a remarkable evening, as our speaker not only went into considerable detail on the battle itself, but also added the personal touch at relevant points, as he explained his role as one of the fighter pilot escorts to the ground troops. It proved to be a correct judgement.

The plan was monumental with just 7 days to launch the first ever fully equipped airborne force to drop deep behind enemy lines in daylight, in joint operation with ground troops, and using troop carriers, gliders, aircraft of all types to deploy a total of 35, men. The aim was to take all identified bridges and to hold open a mile wide corridor for the army advance through Germany.

How this was all planned was given in detail, including specific targets by unit, air support operations, weather, security, the choice of landing and drop zones and most controversial of all — the use and non-use of available intelligence. Most fascinating of all was the role of our speaker; after a tour on Hurricanes he volunteered for ops on Typhoons and joined Squadron on 28 August His role and those of his pilot colleagues both before and during the 9 days of the battle when 35 pilots were killed made his description of the battle even more fascinating than usual.

The battle started before dawn on 17 September , when bombers supported by over fighter escorts, bombed German positions in preparation for the airborne armada to arrive at their drop zones around hours.

That it was a mighty Allied failure, probably accounts for it not being particularly well-known in England and America, although in France, those who lost their lives are honoured each and every year without fail. It came on 19 August Vice-Admiral Louis Mountbatten, Chief of Combined Operations, was keen to test his forces against real opposition, so devised and won approval for a raid on a French port heavily defended by the occupying German army.

The division was made up of three brigades of infantry two parachute , one glider borne , supporting artillery and anti-tank batteries and substantial Royal Engineer units, as well as supporting elements such as Royal Army Service Corps and Royal Army Medical Corps units. IX Troop Carrier Command were limited in their availability; with two more major drops taking place at the same time, there were insufficient carrier aircraft available to fly the entire division to the Netherlands in one lift.

Additionally, Major General Williams — commander of IX Troop Carrier Command — decided that it would only be possible to fly one air lift per day, [10] meaning it would take three days to deliver the entire Division and Polish Brigade to the area. John Frost — would follow the riverside roads to the centre of Arnhem codenamed the Lion route and secure the main road and railway bridges, as well as a pontoon bridge situated between them.

The 3rd Battalion of Lt. Fitch would head through Oosterbeek to Arnhem Tiger route , assist in the capture of the road bridge and take up positions in the east of the town. Dobie’s 1st Battalion would follow Leopard route north of the railway line to occupy high ground north and north west of Arnhem. Hackett’s three battalions would then reinforce the positions north and north west of Arnhem. A serious challenge to their operation was not expected and many men believed that their work would lead to the ending of the war.

Frederick Browning ‘s intelligence officer — Major Brian Urquhart — obtained information from the 21st Army Group in Belgium and Dutch resistance that German armour was present around Arnhem. This was backed up with aerial reconnaissance that he ordered to be flown.

Sosabowski tells his own story: He took part in the September campaign against the Nazi invaders and helped in the defence of Warsaw. Almost immediately after the Polish defeat, he became involved in the resistance, which eventually became the Home Army; he was soon sent on a mission to Rumania, and laconically records that, after that departure from Poland, he never saw his homeland again.

My father never saw his parents again after he was called up in August , but he was fortunate and adventurous enough eventually to make the journey to the Belorussian SSR and revisit when he was born and grew up. Sosabowski, because of his involvement with the underground, came via France to the UK; Polish forces at that time were based in Scotland and he had the idea of founding a parachute brigade which would eventually be able to take a lead part in the liberation of Warsaw.

Eventually the Polish Government allowed the brigade to be used in the wider European theatre of war, and it saw action in the disastrous and ill-planned Arnhem action. There are detailed accounts of a horrendous battle over several days, and Sosabowski analyses the reasons for the debacle from his point of view: One gets the impression of a very shabby episode, with various people scurrying to cover their own backs, in the context of a wider sell-out of the Polish nation, for whom Britain had originally gone to war in the first place.

The book was a decent read and I felt rather better informed about times my father chose not to speak of.

Bridge over River Rhine September The plans included the largest airborne operation carried out ever at the time. British and Polish paratroops were dropped north of the river Rhine, far behind enemy lines, to seize the bridge before the Germans could destroy it. Unfortunately the location of the airborne landings proved to be too far from the Arnhem road bridge.
