See http://arnhemjim.blogspot.com/2012/1...f-british.html. Unfortunately he exercised some major artistic license on the back-end, which I think severely detracted from an otherwise accurate rendition. Certainly his prerogative, as self proclaimed "Creative Director". Hope by now you have had the opportunity to read Antony Beevor's best seller on Arnhem, and an older title, ARNHEM-The Fight to Sustain by Frank Steer. If you are further inclined, you may find the following analysis on my blog page of some interest; http://arnhemjim.blogspot.com/p/oper...et-garden.html.

Hi Jim,
Greetings from the 'self-proclaimed' creative director to the 'self-proclaimed' technical adviser...
Happy to hear you're still advising.
All the best,
