A Bridge Too Far is Cornelius Ryan's masterly chronicle of the Battle of Arnhem, which marshaled the greatest armada of troop-carrying aircraft ever assembled and cost the Allies nearly twice as many casualties as D-day. In this compelling work of history, Ryan narrates the Allied effort to end the war in Europe in 1944 by dropping the combined airborne forces of the American and British armies behind German lines to capture the crucial bridge across the Rhine at Arnhem. Focusing on a vast cast of characters--from Dutch civilians to British and American strategists to common soldiers and commanders--Ryan brings to life one of the most daring and ill-fated operations of the war. A Bridge Too Far superbly recreates the terror, suspense, heroism, and tragedy of this epic operation, which ended in bitter defeat for the Allies.… (mais)

Many, many years ago, I watched the movie A Bridge Too Far. Just the other night, I watched the movie again. This time, I have more understanding of the battle after reading the Band of Brothers series and reading Cornelius Ryan’s book that inspired the movie, A Bridge Too Far. Ryan’s book helped to fill in a number of answers I had while watching the movie. Read more

This is about Project Market Garden, a battle during WWII in Holland where the Allies were meant to capture some bridges. It didn’t happen.

I feel terrible rating this so low. The only other book I’ve read by this author, I rated 5 stars and have recommended it multiple times (his book on D-Day). I am blaming this on the audio. I think it’s tough subject matter for audio, anyway, so I probably shouldn’t have tried it in this format, but I did. Unfortunately, I found the narrator very monotone, so to be honest, I just missed the majority of what was going on. It didn’t hold my attention, so I wasn’t paying attention. I do not like rating this so low, but given how much of it I “missed”, I just can’t give it a higher rating. ( )

A Bridge Too Far tells the story of Operation Market Garden, an Allied military operation following the D-Day invasions. The goal was to take a series of bridges that would allow the Allies to invade Germany. The title comes from an unconfirmed comment, attributed to Lieutenant-General Frederick Browning, to Monty: “I think we may be going a bridge too far.” The operation was only partly successful and the Allies lost a lot of men. The story of this operation was dramatized in the 1977 film A Bridge Too Far, which is the reason I read the book.

This is a big book and not to be taken lightly. It does contain interesting anecdotes and some good photos, but it is just crammed with details, and if you’re not in the right mood for it or you don’t have a plan to tackle it, it will be a difficult read. So it is for me. I started reading it in June 2018 but had stopped seriously reading it sometime in August (after I found a hilarious anecdote about gliders). If you’re looking for the basics, the film, adapted from this book by William Goldman, would probably suffice. ( )
