"To capture and hold the crossing over the canals and rivers on the [British] 2nd Army's main axis of advance from about Eindhoven to Arnhem inclusive ... the [airborne] carpet is very long so it will be necessarily narrow. The essence of the business is to capture those bridges intact. And this will mean dropping as many men on the bridge as possible from the word 'go' ..."

-- Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery,
describing his plan, Operation Market Garden
