Operation Market Garden. I want know all about it. What went wrong? I'm not an expert on the subject, and barely know about it, only general stuff. What I learned was that it was a high-risk operation that failed. And that it was the largest airborne operation attempted at the time (Or maybe still is the largest airborne operation). Why did it fail? Why was it high-risk? What were the casualties? (I know I could find this on Wikipedia, but info about casualties is always controversial) Why did the Allies favour the parachute forces, instead of, say, the marines or infantry?
