Operation Market Garden has been recorded as a complete Allied failure in World War II, an overreach that resulted in an entire airborne division being destroyed at its apex. However, within that operation were episodes of heroism that still remain unsung. This book seeks to recount these stories of immense bravery.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A readable but informative book...supplemented by well chosen maps and illustrations. 4 stars. * Army Rumour Service *
Another remarkable account of quite amazing heroism - the story of the "Devils in Baggy Pants" sees Dutch military historian Frank Van Lunteren telling the tale of a battle within a battle that made heroes of the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment during operation Market Garden, itself considered something of a failure. This story will make you think again. * Books Monthly *
