Description

Twelve Mules And A Pegasus by Harold Padfield - Memoirs of an Arnhem Veteran.

The battle for the Rhine Bridge at Arnhem (17-20th September 1944) as part of Operation Market Garden was an event that affected the lives of many - including the airborne soldiers who descended from the sky onto the earth of Holland, and the Dutch citizens who they landed amongst.

This is the story of Lance-Sergeant Harold Padfield of the Royal Engineers (then aged 23), and of the part the battle and its aftermath had in establishing his lifetime attachment both to Arnhem and its people.

It tells the people of Arnhem of where its paratrooper came from, his wartime fate, his subsequent ventures within a fulfilling career as a Royal Engineer, and of his consistent bond both to Arnhem and to the memory of his fallen comrades.

192 pages, hardback. Contains several images.
