Overview
-

On the ground the airborne logisticians at the battle of Arnhem fought to the bitter end, indistinguishable from their paratroop comrades. In the air, their deeds and sacrifice were shining examples of duty done under the most desperate circumstances. Witness the account of Flight Lieutenant H J King, navigator of Dakota KG 374 of 271 squadron RAF, Down Ampney: These men were not volunteers like aircrew. They received no flyingpay, yet were, without doubt, superb in their fulfillment of duty even though KG 374 was burning for the whole period over the dropping zone.

Arnhem - The Fight To Sustain tells the stirring story of the men and the methods employed in sustaining 1st Airborne Division. It is the first account of forming corps of today's Royal Logistic Corps in action together. Following extensive research the story draws heavily on contemporary documents and eyewitness accounts and is lavishly illustrated.
