RATING:

The Battle of Arnhem was a major battle of the Second World War at the vanguard of the Allied Operation Market Garden. It was fought in and around the Dutch towns of Arnhem, Oosterbeek, Wolfheze and Driel and the surrounding countryside from 17–26 September 1944.

The Allies were poised to enter the Netherlands after sweeping through France and Belgium in the summer of 1944, after the Battle of Normandy. Market Garden was proposed by Field Marshal Sir Bernard Montgomery, who favoured a single thrust north over the branches of the Lower Rhine River, allowing the British Second Army to bypass the Siegfried Line and attack the Ruhr. Allied Airborne troops were dropped in the Netherlands to secure key bridges and towns along the Allied axis of advance. Farthest north, the British 1st Airborne Division landed at Arnhem to secure bridges across the Nederrijn, supported by men of the Glider Pilot Regiment and the 1st Polish Parachute Brigade. British XXX Corps were expected to reach the British airborne forces in two to three days.

The British airborne forces landed some distance from their objectives and were hampered by unexpected resistance, especially from elements of the 9th and 10th SS Panzer Divisions. Only a small force was able to reach the Arnhem road bridge while the main body of the division was halted on the outskirts of the town. Meanwhile, XXX Corps was unable to advance north as quickly as anticipated and they failed to relieve the airborne troops according to schedule. After four days, the small British force at the bridge was overwhelmed and the rest of the division became trapped in a small pocket north of the river, where they could not be sufficiently reinforced by the Poles or XXX Corps when they arrived on the southern bank, nor by the RAF's resupply flights. After nine days of fighting, the shattered remains of the division were withdrawn in Operation Berlin. The Allies were unable to advance farther with no secure bridges over the Nederrijn, and the front line stabilised south of Arnhem. The British 1st Airborne Division lost nearly three quarters of its strength and did not see combat again.

Will play as UK 1st Airborne Division named Red Devils and Polish 1st Parachute Brigade.Our opponents will be the very experienced Germans of the 9 SS PanZer Division.

AFTER ACTION REPORTS

After a tortuous beginning all platoons landed at their respective DZs with only a few casualties. Units quickly formed up at the RVs and began Phase one.

The town between Wolfheze and Oosterbeek was quickly cleared, but 1st and 3rd platoons became bogged down around Oosterbeek, and 2nd Platoon was engaged in Wolfheze. After thirty minutes of hard fighting however, both Oosterbeek and Wolfheze were secure.

As resupply began several problems started to compound on one another. Firstly the supply drops over 2nd and 3rd platoon largely missed, and the units there recieved only two out of eight crates intended for them.

On the other side of the river Alpha's supply drop drifted into the sights of a tiger, and Bravo felt itself well equipped enough, except for anti-tank rounds, to not need a resupply. This would come to bite them in the arse at Arnhem.

The final assault on Arnhem began well, with all squads taking and holding buildings on the outskirts of town. 2nd and 3rd Platoons fought hard to establish a hold on the southern end of the bridge, while 1st Platoon's Alpha and Bravo got to experience the intimate and unwelcome attention of a Panzer VI Tiger.

2nd and 3rd Platoons bravely charged across the bridge to the rescue of 1st, and suceeded in securing the town.

Once it was apparent that his position was overrun the German commander surrendered his command to the British Officer, and the company moved to take up defensive positions on the edge of town, Victorious.

9 Days later that same force would slink back to allied lines under cover of darkness, having been surrounded by german reinforcements and cut off from supply.
