From 1 Brit Airborne Div 242114 hrs.

This desperate message from British 1st Airborne is a poignant reminder of the plight of the Paras in the final hours of Operation Market Garden: A Bridge Too Far. This new Blog is both a tribute to the brave men of the British, Polish and US forces who took part in the Operation and a chronicle of the wargame we intend to put on in 2017 to commemorate the campaign.

I hope to provide some insight into what happened and also to share how we went about collecting, converting and organizing our miniature armies to re fight the major action across the full length of the Market-Garden corridor.

  1. Looking good, Michael!

    I've put up a post on TMP announcing the date and place of the game on Saturday, Sept. 31st, 2017 at Cal State University Fullerton, with a link to this blog.

    Onwards and upwards... hopefully with XXX Corps all the way to Arnhem!
