World War II – Airborne, Operation Market Garden

As I mentioned in my welcoming statement this is how this project started. While looking for books concerning the Arnhem deployment, better known as Operation Market Garden, I came across a book at my local library that I had never heard of. The book was “A Drop Too Many: A Paratrooper at Arnhem” by the legendary Maj. Gen. John D Frost. Well I thought to myself how many more books have been published about not just this airborne operation but of all airborne operations during World War II?
Well my list swelled as I searched site after site until finally it spilled over to other aspects of the war. As each list of World War II books increased it dawned on me that I needed some way to organize the growing titles. My final solution was to organize by subject matter, location of operation and then by author. It was in this way that duplication would be reduced and some form of review could be better accomplished.
So here is my first list, with title, author, and the number of pages covering only the airborne/ground operations better known as “Operation Market Garden”.
