Animated Mini-DocumentaryOperation Market Garden
On September 17, 1944, 20,000 men dropped from the sky into the Nazi-occupied Netherlands. Comprised of troops primarily from Britain, the United States, and Poland, this force constituted the single largest airborne operation in history, one intended to begin the end of Nazi Germany. Instead, it ended in disaster. The operation, called Market Garden, has often been cited as one of the great allied failures of the Second World War. In this video, The Armchair Historian goes through the operation day by day and location by location to explore just how far short they fell of those lofty goals.
