The subheading of Civilian Experiences in the Netherlands 1940-1945 gives you a good idea of what to expect from the second Arnhem book this month. It covers life in Arnhem under the Nazis, before the attack and the subsequent effect on the location population when it failed. The Germans reacted by creating a famine and removing the population en masse. The story of how the public had to survive starvation and ate food that other areas deemed fit only for pigs is particularly harrowing. An interesting and alternative view of the battle and its consequences.
