THE ROAD TO THE RHINE - Framed Collectors Piece
Robert sets the scene on Sunday 17 September 1944, the first day of Operation Market Garden, as C-47 Dakotas of the 439th Troop Carrier Group drop thousands of paratroopers from the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions into Holland, a hundred and fifty miles behind enemy lines.
