The "We have ways of making you talk" WW2 podcast, with Al Murray (The Pub Landlord) and historian James Holland, is covering Operation Market Garden with a daily podcast looking at the various aspects of the mission and why it failed. For anyone with CoC or IABSM forces for this period, it is essential listening, no matter how familiar you are with OMG; as someone who knows little of the battle (other than to ignore that myth-riddled film), I was astonished by what I've heard so far as regards the planning and how rushed and almost amateurish it was.

Here is today's programme for anyone needing a link:-

Excellent thanks.

Will look forward to listening to it later.

Yes Arnhem was going ahead no matter what, from Brit para POV, they wanted some action as they had been sitting on butts since 1943.
