As a young Private in the 82nd Airbourne, Gene Metcalfe found himself in the vanguard of the Largest Airbourne invasion in History with the ill-fated British Operation, ‘Market Garden’. It is Sept 1944 and over 35 thousand airborne troopers are to be dropped behind enemy lines in Holland to capture vital bridges so the British Army’s XXX Corp could come up and punch a hole through the German lines into northern Holland and ‘End the War’ by Christmas, at a place called – ‘A Bridge Too Far’!
