Chapter 14: The Cauldron, by Zeno

In September, 1944, the British 1st Airborne Division found itself in a fierce battle for the Dutch city of Arnhem. Al Murray reads the story of a single platoon trapped in the smoking ruins of the city. The author, known as Zeno, fought at Arnhem and later wrote this account of the battle while in prison. Although long out of print, The Cauldron remains the best first hand account of the British forces stranded on the north side of the Rhine.
