I do not for a moment believe that Arnhem is the most studied battle in history. That mantle goes to Napolean, and you can take your pick from the many battles he fought. Waterloo for one, or Borodino, or Austerlitz. Arnhem does not even come close to the amount of paper thats been generated by the Corsican. There are 500,000 plus books concerning him and things about him in the American Library of Congress ALONE. Napolean is generally known as history's Greatest Soldier. Arnhem was the last opportunity for something almost purely British to directly affect the course of military history. Oh sure, American units were involved, but it was British planned, a British general in charge. British units were at the point of the spear, and British units were to be the 'cavalry' that got them out of the poo. It was a tragedy in the most traditional sense, and a good old British 'cock-up' in a period of the war when everything was going the other way. What more can you ask of a story? How much more compelling does it have to be? The failure of 'Market-Garden' altered the end of ww2, and changed postwar history to the detriment of millions of people. No wonder people still argue about it. A last chance for the Lion to roar, but it came out as a 'meow' instead, because the Lion was a pussycat that did not know it was a pussycat. All the other fighting animals could see this, all but the Lion itself. King of the jungle no longer.
