Published to commemorate the fortieth anniversary, this is one of the best modern accounts of both ground and airborne components of MARKET-GARDEN (and a worthy complement to Ryan). Powell served thoughout the battle and was one of the lucky ones; he escaped back across the Rhine on 25 September. As 'Tom Angus' he wrote 'Men at Arnhem' (1976). Enser, p.13.
