On September 17th 1944 the Allies began Operation Market Garden , anambitious plan to capture and secure a corridor crossing the
main rivers in German occupied Holland. The task of capturing the
bridge over the Rhine fell to the British 1st Airborne Division and
the Polish 1st Independent Parachute Brigade. The British drop was
far from successful. Suffering from horrendous communications, they
resorted to asking the locals for directions and other information.
This set includes the figures of 3 British Paratroopers with a
variety of weapons, and a civilian giving directions.
