From the cover: “The Reconnaissance Corps was a special wartime force, formed in 1941 and disbanded five years later. During the savage struggle at Arnhem, the 1st Airborne Reconnaissance Squadron played a unique part, with its patrols probing well beyond enemy positions and its members involved in every sector of the Battle. Set against a well-documented general background, the memories of the ‘Recce’ men have an immediacy that is guaranteed to grip and, at times, shock the reader. It was a quiet autumn Sunday in 1944 when those men of matchless courage came to Holland from the skies. This is their story.”
