Holidays for Heroes - Book: A Drop Too Many - ends 17/09/13

In this auction you can bid for the magnificent book:



A Drop Too Many by Major-General John Frost


The book is in excellent condition.


"At Arnhem, the British 2nd Parachute Regiment held the north end of the key road bridge over the Rhine not for 24 hours for which it was equipped, but for 3 days and 4 nights. Commanded by the author, they beat off repeated armoured and infantry assaults by far greater numbers, until forced out of the ruined and burning positions by losses, lack of ammunition, and the failure of the whole Arnhem operation.


Their sacrifice stands as one of the most heroic defenses of all time. General Frost's story is, in effect, that of the battalion.
His tale starts with the Iraq Levies and goes on the major airborne operations in which he took part - Bruneval, Tunisia, Sicily, Italy, Arnhem - and continues with his experiences as a prisoner and the reconstruction of the battalion after the German surrender. Though written with modesty and humor, the book is shot through with the fire and determination of the fighting soldier, and throws important new light on many controversies, not only those of Arnhem. This book is a major contribution to the literature of the last war."



This is what the book looks like:
