Arnhemdan qochish: Glider uchuvchisi hikoyasi, Godfri Freeman

Bu avtobiografiya muallifning Buyuk Britaniyaning Arnhemga hujum qilgan havo -desantli kuchlarida planer uchuvchisi bo'lgan tajribalariga bag'ishlangan. Jang oxirida u nemislar tomonidan asirga olindi, lekin Golland qarshiliklari yordamida ham asirlikdan, ham dushman bosib olgan hududdan qochishga muvaffaq bo'ldi.

Freeman Arnhemdagi oxirgi kun hisobidan boshlanadi. Keyin u o'zining erta hayoti, RAF mashg'ulotlari va harakatga kirishni kutish boblari o'rtasida almashadi va qochib ketgunga qadar nemis harbiy asirlari tizimi orqali o'tadigan bo'limlar. Bu vaqtda u bitta hikoyaga e'tibor qaratib, Angliyaga qaytguniga qadar davom etadi.

Bu hayajonli qochish hikoyasi bilan Freemanning jasoratning tabiati haqidagi fikrlari aralashgan. Ko'plab jasur erkaklar singari, u ham bitta emasligiga ishongan, aksincha, jasur erkaklar hech qanday asabni ko'rsatmaganiga ishongan. Men u bilan bu fikrga qo'shilmayman - Freeman tez -tez qo'rqardi, lekin qo'rquvini yengib, Germaniya bosib olgan hududdan va Reyn bo'ylab qochishga muvaffaq bo'ldi, lekin uning qarashlari jangdagi jasoratning mohiyati to'g'risida qiziqarli burchak beradi.

Free Gollandiyada boshidan kechirgan voqealari haqida ajoyib hikoya tayyorlab, sarguzashtli qochish haqidagi hikoyani jasoratning tabiati haqidagi fikrlari bilan muvaffaqiyatli birlashtirdi.

Bu yosh armiya uchuvchisi va Arnhem ko'prigini himoya qilishning oxirgi kunlaridagi rsquos tajribasining ajoyib hikoyasi, uni oxir-oqibat qo'lga kiritish va keyin qarshiliklar tomonidan asrab olinish, bosib olingan Evropa bo'ylab sochlarni ko'tarish sayohati va nihoyat Buyuk Britaniya.

Qo'lga olingandan so'ng, Freeman birinchi marta Apeldoornga olib borildi, u erda qobiq zarbasi bilan kasalxonaga yotqizildi. Aql -idrokli bo'lsa -da, u ittifoqdoshlarning to'rt mahbusining qochishiga yordam bergani uchun jazolanmaguncha, travma haqida o'ylardi. Keyin u Germaniyaga ketayotgan poezdga o'tirdi, shundan u qochdi va oxir -oqibat Gollandiya metrosi bilan aloqa o'rnatdi. Unga fuqarolik kiyimlari va velosiped beriladi va bir kechada Barnveldga boradi, u erda maktab o'qituvchisi va cherkov organisti bilan qoladi. Keyin fermaga boshqa velosipedda sayohat qilib, u pichanida uxlaydi va nihoyat velosipedda, u nemis fronti bo'ylab o'tadi. Oxir -oqibat, u Dakota tomonidan RAF Broadwellga qaytariladi va urushda qatnashishni davom ettiradi, bir oy ichida asirlikdan ozodlikka.

Matn mualliflik va bolalik va erta tayyorgarlik haqida o'tmish bilan bog'liq bo'lib, urush davrining oddiy, ammo jasur yigitining haqiqiy ruhini aks ettiradi.

Muallif: Godfrey Jon Freeman, 1924 yil 4 -iyunda Xuk Nortonda tug'ilgan, Oksfordshir 1999 yil 9 -yanvarda Oksfordning Cherchill kasalxonasida tinch vafot etib, ikki o'g'li Mark va Karlni, onasini, sobiq rafiqasi Sheila Freemanni qoldirib ketgan.

Godfri Freeman, o'z planeriga tushib, podpolkovnik Frost qo'l ostida Arnhem ko'prigida jang qilayotgan kamdan -kam odamlardan biri edi. Bu erda u 1944 yil 20 sentyabrda SSSR tomonidan asir olingan.

O'qish quvonchli bo'lgan bu yaxshi yozilgan kitobda, Freeman, otasi unga lotin va yunon tillarini o'rgatgan, o'zini yoshligida Glider uchuvchilar polkining ixtiyoriysi bo'lgan qishloq vicarining boshpanasiz hayotida qanday tarbiyalanganligini aytadi. 19. Arnhemda qo'lga olingandan so'ng, Freeman qobiq zarbasidan azob chekayotganini da'vo qildi va uni qirolicha Vilgelminaning Apeldoorndagi yozgi saroyiga olib ketishdi. shifoxona. Aql -idrokli bo'lsa -da, u travma haqida o'ylab, qochishni o'ylab, lekin ittifoqdosh to'rt mahbusning qochishiga yordam berganidan keyin jazolandi. Biroq, bu Freemanning qochishga majburlanishini susaytirmadi va yana muvaffaqiyatsiz urinishdan so'ng, u va yana bir necha kishi o't o'chirish shlangini urib qochib qutuldilar.

Gollandiyalik fermerning uyiga joylashgandan so'ng, u bilan Gollandiya er osti bog'lanishdi. Unga fuqarolik kiyimlari va velosiped berildi va to'g'ridan -to'g'ri nemis fronti bo'ylab o'tishi kerak edi, ko'pincha dushmanning katta patrullari yonidan o'tib ketardi. Nihoyat uni Britaniya patrul xizmati qutqarib, R.A.F. Brodvell bir oydan keyin qo'lga olinishdan ozodlikka qadar urushdagi ishtirokini davom ettirishi kerak.

Matn muallifning bolaligidan va erta mashg'ulotidan o'tib ketgan, o'tmishdagi xotiralar bilan o'ralgan bo'lib, u oddiy kamtar va ayni paytda mard yigitning haqiqiy ruhini aks ettiradi. Yomon hazil tuyg'usi va o'zgarmas ingliz ruhi bilan birlashtirilgan Freemanning hikoyasi, qiyinchiliklar oldida keskinlik, jo'shqinlik va maqtovga sazovor ruhiyatga to'la ajoyib hikoya. Glider uchuvchilarining barchasi polkka qo'shilish uchun qattiq Amri mashg'ulotidan o'tdi va burg'ulash serjantining odatdagi masxarasidan omon qolishga majbur bo'ldi. Godfreyning holatida, u barak maydonida "Rolls Roys aksenti va Ostin 7 spektakli bilan Freeman!" Uning oyoq mashqlari, ehtimol, qolganlarnikidan ko'ra tanqidga loyiq emas edi va keyinchalik uning uchuvchi va askar sifatida o'ynashi ajoyib edi.

Burgut, 2010 yil dekabr

Godfri Freeman RAFga bir necha bor kirishga urinib ko'rdi, lekin sternumida depressiya bo'lgani uchun rad etildi. Buning o'rniga u Ox va Bucks yengil piyoda askarlari safiga qo'shildi, so'ng o'z xohish -istagini amalga oshirib, Glider uchuvchi polkiga ishga kirdi. Glider uchuvchilar polki kuchli obro'ga ega bo'ldi, chunki ular nafaqat to'liq o'qitilgan uchuvchilar, balki qo'nganlarida ham piyoda askar sifatida harakatga kirishdilar.

Arnhemdan qochish Arnhem ko'prigi qulaganidan ko'p o'tmay boshlanadi va Freemanni asirlikka oladi. U qichqiriqni o'ylab topdi, shuning uchun uni Stalagga jo'natishdan ko'ra, kasalxonada saqlashini va shuning uchun qochish ehtimoli ko'proq bo'lishini o'ylardi. U dastlab Apeldoorn yaqinidagi Xet Lu qirollik saroyidagi kasalxonaga yotqizilgan. Mening bobom, u ham Arnhemda yaralangan va asir olingan, xuddi shu joyda bo'lgan bo'lishi mumkin. Oxir -oqibat u qochib ketdi va boshqa 120 qochqin bilan birgalikda Reyn bo'ylab Pegasusning jasur qochishida qatnashdi. Pegas operatsiyasi Stiven Ambrose aka -ukalar guruhida namoyish etilgan. Dastlab Freeman bilan birga qochgan odamlardan biri, mayor Jon Kok, keyinroq qochishga urinish paytida o'ldirilgan.

Freemanning hisobi bizga Arnhemda qo'lga olingan havo -desant askarlari tajribasi haqida juda yaxshi taassurot qoldiradi. Shaxsiy nuqtai nazardan, bu menga juda qiziq tuyuladi, chunki bobom u bilan nima bo'lgani haqida juda kam gaplashgan. Shartlar, ularning nemis gvardiyasi bilan bo'lgan munosabatlar, tibbiy yordam va ratsion haqida o'qish, mening tushunishimdagi ba'zi kamchiliklarni to'ldirishga yordam beradi. Bu kitobni yaratgan Freeman bergan tiniq xotiralar. Xuddi general-mayor Urxartning samolyotining orqasida kasal bo'lib qolgani va qochqinlarni panoh topgan Gollandiyaliklarning mehmondo'stligi haqidagi xotiralari singari.

Menimcha, Friman o'z do'stlari va oilasi bilan o'z xotiralarini yig'ish uchun gaplashishi kerak edi-u "men kabi" bo'lishidan qo'rqardi. Uning yozish uslubi juda kamtar va haqiqatan ham muhim - bu hikoyalarga hech qanday bezak yoki yaltiroq kerak emas, chunki bu ularning obro'siga putur etkazadi. Arnhem haqida juda ko'p kitoblar yozilgan, lekin hech kim bunday kamtarlikka ega emas.

Sovet hududidagi partizanlar partizanlar, Axis tomonidan bosib olingan Evropadagi boshqa hamkasblari singari, antifashistik faoliyat uchun kuchli obro'ga ega bo'lishdi. Ammo ularning kurash yo'li murakkab edi. Ichida.

Lost at Nijmegen by R. G. Poulussen

The three day delay in the capture of the Waal Bridge in Nijmegen was unnecessary and seriously contributed to the failure of operation "Market Garden". For the first time a factual account of the decisive first twenty-four hours of fighting by the 82nd Airborne Division around Nijmegen. Somehow, the importance of the three day delay is usually overlooked in the evaluation of operation "Market Garden". If the Waal Bridge had been secured, when XXX Corps arrived in Nijmegen on the 19th of September, they would have had 48 hours to relieve their compatriots at Arnhem. The three day delay in the capture of the Waal Bridge is generally explained as follows: the necessary quick capture of the Waal Bridge failed because the commander of the 508 PIR (Parachute Infantry Regiment) - designated to capture the Waal Bridge - misunderstood pre-jump orders given by General Gavin. Authentic documents however prove that in fact no pre-jump orders were issued, as claimed by General Gavin. There is an official statement in which General Gavin admits that he alone was responsible for the shift in priority from capturing the Waal Bridge to defending the Groesbeek Heights. As a direct result the 508 PIR landed without offensive orders, disabling the key weapon of General Gavin: the effect of surprise. Based on a lot of original material in Dutch and American archives, the author meticulously describes the combat actions of the 504 and 508 PIR. Furthermore, the American strength is analysed and so is the German threat toward the landing zones on the 18th of September. The achievements of the Dutch are not forgotten the last three days of Jan Van Hoof are described in detail and so are the actions of Captain Bestebreurtje and volunteer Agardus Leegsma.

No Return Flight: 13 Platoon At Arnhem by Haks Walburgh Schmidt

This book tells the story of the search for the men aboard a huge Horsa glider that sailed into the Battle at Arnhem on 18 September 1944. In the early phase of the battle the pilots of the British engineless plane wish their passengers good luck in their race for the Arnhem bridges, probably never to see them again. 54 years later one of the pilots, Sergeant Morley 'Taffy' Williams, visiting the Netherlands for the annual commemorations of the battle, meets a Dutch journalist and expresses his deep wish to find out what happened to his passengers of that fateful flight to Arnhem. Together they decide to start a search for them. Over six years later this investigation has resulted in a moving personal story of the Battle at Arnhem. The captivating stories of the airbornes give the reader a surprising and gripping view on the events. As a fascinating consequence the search has led to several unexpected renewed personal contacts between the pilot and some of his passengers and their relatives. It also rekindled the search for some of Morley's passengers that are still missing. To buy: Gazelle Books or Amazon.

Nothing is Impossible: A Glider Pilot's Story of Sicily, Arnhem and the Rhine Crossing by Victor Miller

Pegasus Archive review: Victor Miller was a member of "G" Squadron, The Glider Pilot Regiment, and he describes his experiences with this unique force from the early days of its formation and his training as a pilot, through to the invasion of Sicily, the Battle of Arnhem and the Rhine Crossing. It is a pity that Miller did not participate in the Normandy landings, as his book would then have been a complete study of all the major Airborne operations in Western Europe. There have been many memoirs, including a few classics, which had been written about the Airborne Forces, but what sets this extremely readable account apart is the sheer depth of Miller's narrative and his considerable skill as a writer. Arnhem, spanning almost half of the book, is clearly the centre piece, and he provides a most vivid account of the desperate fighting which took place as the exhausted and depleted remnants of the 1st Airborne Division struggled to hold a bridgehead across the Rhine. Highly recommended. Price 20.00. Copies may be purchased from Amazon or http://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/Nothing-is-Impossible-Hardback/p/10835

Operation Market Garden: The Battles for Nijmegen and Arnhem September 1944 An appreciation of the Royal Engineer Element by John Carbis

Although much of this is by sheer force of circumstance, bound up with the gallant events of the Allied Airborne force during those few fateful days in September 1944, there is another equally important series of events that should be attributed to the 'engineering achievement' both by the airborne engineers and those of XXX Corps it is this emphasis that this book has endeavoured to highlight. Lt Colonel Myers, the CRE at Arnhem, in his after action report said of 4 Parachute Squadron RE. & quotSappers can fight or they can do field engineering. This Parachute Squadron had, for months almost years, been yearning for a fight. It got it and it did magnificently as soldiers."

Rifleman: A Front Line Life by Victor Gregg

Pegasus Archive review: A highly readable autobiography, beginning with the early years of Victor Gregg's life in pre-war London and then his service in the British Army. His vivid account of the war in the Western Desert with the Rifle Brigade, including temporary attachments to Popski's Private Army and the Long Range Desert Group, is particularly compelling. Joining the Parachute Regiment thereafter, Gregg fought with the 10th Battalion in Italy and at Arnhem, where he was taken prisoner. Condemned to death for inadvertently burning down a factory in Dresden, he survived because that city perished in a firestorm an event which he describes in harrowing detail. Gregg became a member of the Communist Party after the war, and, by now accustomed to life on the edge, found himself chauffeuring numerous suspect characters across Britain. He proceeded to tread the very fine line between assisting the Communists and passing information to the British. Later used by MI6 to make numerous trips across the Iron Curtain, Gregg's story ends in 1989, when he happened to attend a rally in Sopron where the wire separating east and west was cut, a few weeks before the Berlin Wall fell. A fitting final chapter in the story of a man who has led a quite extraordinary life. Price 13.49.

The completely revised edition of the Roll of Honour of the Battle of Arnhem has been published at last! Originally compiled by Jan Hey in 1986, Geert Maassen and Philip Reinders, aided by a number of people from the Netherlands and abroad, have now produced the fifth edition. This brand new book was published by the Society of Friends of the Airborne Museum Oosterbeek. Compared to the previous edition (from 1999) 24 names and other information of Allied soldiers who died during or as a consequence of the fighting in September 1944, have been added. 10 names had to be skipped since the men involved turned out not to have been at Arnhem or did not die due to the battle. Appendix A shows that 1915 military, including 243 of the air forces and 82 Air Despatchers, were killed. Data about more than 1300 of these have been corrected or expanded since 1999. Relevant information was added, derived from: dossiers about those who died in POW camps or hospitals in Germany casualty files in the National Archives in London Polish military documents in The Polish Institute and Sikorski Museum data from a private collection about wounded men in Apeldoorn hospitals the archives of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. A new chapter is about the many graves of men "Known unto God", over 280 of which were found in the Netherlands. Of these 240 are in the Arnhem Oosterbeek War Cemetery. According to Jan Hey's figures 424 men are missing in action to this day. Thus it can be concluded that the mortal remains of about 140 soldiers of the Allied army that were involved in the Battle of Arnhem have never been found or registered. "Roll of Honour - Battle of Arnhem - September 1944" is a hardcover book, counts 272 pages, and contains 225 photographs and other illustrations (ISBN: 9789081755306). Readers in the United Kingdom can purchase a copy from Niall Cherry, the price being 25 plus 5 postage and packing: [email protected] In the Netherlands this reference book is available from the local book shops in the Arnhem region and from the Airborne Museum Hartenstein at Oosterbeek.

The Dead Still Cry Out: The Story of a Combat Cameraman by Helen Lewis

Helen Lewis was just a child when she found an old suitcase hidden in a cupboard at home. Inside it were the most horrifying photographs she'd ever seen - a record of the atrocities committed at Bergen-Belsen. They belonged to her father, Mike, a British paratrooper and combat cameraman who had filmed the camp s liberation. The child of Jewish refugees, Mike had grown up in London's East End and experienced antisemitism firsthand in the England of the 1930s. Those first images of the Nazis' crimes, shot by Mike Lewis and others like him, shocked the world. In The Dead Still Cry Out, his daughter Helen uses photographs and film stills to reconstruct Mike's early life and experience of the war, while exploring broader questions too: what it means to belong how history and memory are shaped - and how anyone can deny the Holocaust in the face of such powerful evidence.

The Devil's Birthday: The Bridges to Arnhem 1944 by Geoffrey Powell

Pegasus Archive review: Geoffrey Powell's account of Operation Market Garden is widely considered to be amongst the very best, not least because his impeccable research has produced an account which considers the campaign in its entirety, not just the part played by the 1st Airborne Division at Arnhem, but also those of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions and the 2nd British Army. The narrative contains no personal recollections, nor does it dwell on the actions of individuals, instead it catalogues the events as they unfolded and presents a meticulous study of the command decisions made, as well as the numerous elements, some of which are often overlooked, which conspired to bring about the collapse of an operation which had promised so much. As a volume which clearly and accurately describes these aspects and sets the entire Market Garden campaign into context, there is, in my opinion, no finer book on the subject. Price 11.99. Copies may be purchased from Amazon or http://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/The-Devils-Birthday/p/3494/

The Grey Goose of Arnhem by Leo Heaps

Pegasus Archive review: After the 1st Airborne Division withdrew from Arnhem on the 25th September 1944, Leo Heaps was one of several hundred of their number who, having escaped or evaded capture, were sheltered by the Dutch Resistance on the German-occupied side of the River Rhine. Having made contact with the 2nd British Army, they were equipped with arms and made ready to assist them if another attempt to cross the river was made, but once it became clear that this would not happen it was decided to smuggle the entire party through enemy territory and into the Allied lines. Heaps played a prominent role in the daring and completely successful Operation Pegasus, and so was superbly placed to tell the story of how 138 men were hidden in Holland for a month before making good their escape. His personal account is but one small aspect of the book, however, and he paints a superb portrait of the many colourful characters who organised the force and planned the crossing.

Escape from Arnhem: A Glider Pilot's Story, Godfrey Freeman - History

This is the remarkable true story of a young army glider pilot&rsquos experience of the last days in the defense of Arnhem Bridge, his eventual capture and then escape to be adopted by the Resistance, the hair-raising journey through occupied Europe and his eventual return to the UK.

After capture Freeman was first taken to Apeldoorn where he was hospitalized, claiming shell-shock. Although quite sane, he feigned trauma with escape in mind, until being punished for aiding the escape of four Allied inmates. Then he was put on a train bound for Germany, from this he escaped and eventually made contact with the Dutch underground. He is given civilian cloths and a bicycle and rides overnight to Barnveld where he stays with a schoolmaster and church organist. Then another cycle ride to a farm where he sleeps in the hayloft and finally still on his bike, he rides through the German front lines. He eventually is returned to RAF Broadwell by Dakota to resume his part in the war, from capture to freedom within a month. The text is interspersed with flashbacks to the author&rsquos childhood and early training, capturing the true spirit of a typical modest and yet outstandingly brave young man of the wartime era.

The story is that of three planes of the 77th Troop Carrier Squadron of the 435th Troop Carrier Group. A three plane flight of C-47's loaded with paratroopers of G Company, 501st Paratroop Infantry Regiment descends into the dark night, a small part of 821 Troop Carrier transports delivering the first blow to Fortress Europe on D-Day. Two are shot down and destroyed the third, piloted by Jesse Harrison makes a valiant run back into the hailstorm of enemy flak and fire that later garners the pilot the Distinguished Flying Cross. Paratroopers who jumped from Harrison's plane and survived were mad as hell for the drop they got. It is McLaughlin's meticulous research that reveals for them the truth of what happened to them decades earlier.
