British author Robert Kershaw wrote a classic called It never snows in September in which Kershaw provides a detailed description of Operation Market Garden and the Battle of Arnhem from the German perspective. For his book he interviewed a lot of German soldiers who were present during the operation, including Heinz Harmel, the 10th SS-Panzer-Division SS-Brigadeführer. Kershaw will give a lecture on the German perspective in the museum on 11 September.
Robert Kershaw, who until recently was very high up in the NAVO, joined the parachute regiment in 1973, for which he served in Northern-Ireland, Bosnia, and the first Gulf War. He received an American Bronze Star for his service. He wrote twelve military history books and contributed to The Times, The Sunday Times, the Daily Telegraph and the Sunday Telegraph.
