Operation Market Garden was in full swing and encountering unexpectedly heavy resistance. Attempts to wrest control of the Waal Bridge by head-on assaults were repulsed. General Gavin decided on a daring river assault to outflank the center of resistance. A mile to the west, the 504th Parachute Regiment was to cross in broad daylight behind a massive smokescreen, advance along the north bank, ad link up with other elements attacking across the bridge. . .
