Welcome on my website about the real reason why operation Markted garden was doomed to fail.
The historic error has it’s foundation that it’s not the battle of Arnhem but rather the battle near Arnhem, Arnhem was never the point of interrest.
It was the bridge that was the point of interrest.
As a veteran told me personally: “We just wanted to kill off Hitler and his regime and the city of Arnhem was never a direct objective”. “In the end we knew the higher officers were the ones that blew it all”.
