One of the greatest historians of the Second World War, Antony Beevor makes his debut at the Borders Book Festival to talk about his new book Arnhem. Known as Operation Market Garden, this massive paratroop campaign to end the war by capturing the bridges leading to the Lower Rhine and beyond turned out to be a catastrophic failure and was hailed as the last German victory. Antony Beevor has painstakingly reconstructed the terrible reality of the fighting and, with consummate skill, he looks into the very heart of war.
