Book release and lecture about Christer Bergström’s new book in two volumes: “Arnhem 1944 – An Epic Battle Revisited”

“New Facts and New Perspectives on Operation Market Garden”

On Tuesday, September 17, Swedish historian Christer Bergström will give a lecture on his latest book “Arnhem 1944 – An Epic Battle Revisited”, which will be released in September this year.

“The in-depth research made by Christer Bergström on Market Garden has resulted in many myths and misconceptions being convincingly dispelled, backed up by detailed source notes. In fact, his two volumes of the book “Arnhem 1944″ form a completely new image of the battle in the Netherlands in the autumn of 1944. Christer Bergström enjoys the reputation of being one of the world’s foremost experts on the Second World War.”

This lecture is in English.
