Operation Market Garden: Group Captain John Killick (far right) with his paratroopers and a German prisoner outside Arnhem in the Netherlands, Sept 18, 1944. Note the two paratroopers with fixed bayonets on their Sten guns (one next to Killick, the other behind the German prisoner). The Sten with bayonet was a relatively rare example of one of the most famous SMGs of WW2.
Victories have many father, catastrophes are orphans.

In spite of his deep reservations about Lieutenant General Frederick Browning - seen here on the left - Brigadier General James Gavin worked hard to develop a good relationship with him. Here the two men are pictured near Groesbeek shortly after XXX Corps had linked up with the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division (Operation Market-Garden) September 1944.
XXX Corps could not reach Arnhem in time and the defenders of the bridge had to surrender. Some 740 men from various regiments had reached the bridge. Very few escaped. The last message to be received from Arnhem Bridge was, "Out of ammunition. God Save the King."
