Operation Market Garden

Operation Market Garden was the Allied invasion of Holland on September 17 1944  and also the biggest airborne drop of all time in hope to cross the Rhine and end the war by Christmas.

The operation was successful at first and several bridges were captured but troops on the ground were delayed so the airborne divisions lost ground without they’re support and on the 25th of September the Allies were forced to Retreat.

Allied Losses: 15 100 – 17 200

German Losses: 7 500 – 10 000
