Review for The |Battle for Arnhem 1944-1945

Author/Director : Anthony Tucker-Jones

Format : Book

As the series title, Images of War, suggests this book contains a large number of rare photographs. The images come from both sides of the battle and from the wider context of the American airborne and British 30 Corps armour trying to relieve the paratroopers. I find it remarkable that all these photographs come from the author’s own collection. They are all captioned some with most interesting details.
However it is rather more than a picture book as the, necessarily limited, text is a very good summary of the full Arnhem story. There are a number of useful maps and a list of books for further reading once this book has aroused the readers interest.
