ARNHEM AIRBORNE ASSAULT - New Release by Simon Smith
Commemorating the 75th Anniversary of Operation Market Garden: 1944 – 2019
Simon’s graphic portrayal depicts a scene on the first day of Operation Market Garden as, early in the afternoon, glider borne infantry from the British 1st Air Landing Brigade successfully secure ‘DZ-X’, the drop-zone on Renkum Heath several miles to the west of Arnhem. Overhead paratroopers from the 1st Parachute Brigade begin their drop from USAAF C-47s.
To commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the fierce battles at Arnhem and to remember the heroes who served during Operation Market Garden, each print in this memorable edition has been authenticated by veterans who fought bravely as the Allies pushed for victory in Europe during WWII.
