NEW BOOK - THE LOST COMPANY
The Arnhem 1944 Fellowship is very pleased to announce that one of its life members Marcel Anker after many years research and writing has completed a book on C Company of the 2nd Parachute Battalion. Members who came on the 2015 Fellowship walk will recall him mentioning that a book was in progress and here it is!
The book is called The Lost Company and is the story of C Company 2nd Parachute Battalion, in Oosterbeek and Arnhem, September 1944, it is a hard back, 128 pages long and contains around 180 B&W photographs and is 21cm x 28cm. It is a limited edition of 200 copies and tells in great detail the actions of this company at the railway bridge in lower Oosterbeek, then around the St Elisabeths Hospital and western Arnhem and finally the few survivors who fought in the Oosterbeek pocket. They were the only rifle company from the 2nd Battalion who never made it to the road bridge.
Over the years Marcel traced and spoke to many veterans of C Company and this work forms the backbone of the book.
The book is priced to Fellowship members at £27.50 for those in the UK. Postage is extra and will depend on where the book is sent to. £32.50 if not a member.
