    Andrei

    1. Lieutenant General Frederick Browning

    2. Major General Roy Urquhart

    4. 101st Airborne under Major General Maxwell Taylor and 82nd Airborne under Brigadier General James Gavin

    5. Brigadier General Stanislaw Sosabowski

    6. Lieutenant General Brian Horrocks

    7. Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands was quoted as “My country can never again afford the luxury of another Montgomery success.” so I assume that Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery, who claimed the operation was a 90% success was the scapegoat.

    This operation was the subject of a great book (by Cornelius Ryan) and film “A Bridge Too Far”
