Tomorrow marks the 65th anniversary of the start of Operation Market Garden ... which, as all Paratroopers know, was the largest airborne operation ever conceived and launched that — unfortunately — failed.

But it was Monty's stab at a "quick" end to WW II.

Best book about it is A Bridge Too Far by Cornelius Ryan.

This was also the name of the movie that starred virtually every American and British "he-man" actor there ever was. Not bad, as WW II flics of that era go.
