Holland, Sept 22nd 1944: By D+4, Thursday morning, things were getting rather "sticky", as the British would say, at Arnhem. Lt Col. Frost's force still held the north side of the main bridge, but they were on their last legs, unable to hold much longer. General Urquhart, with the balance of the 1st Airborne Division, was holding a narrow perimeter with their backs to the Rhine. The good news was that XXX Corps was across the Waal River, but the bad was it had failed to advance during the night. Morning saw the Germans setting up a hasty defense on the Island. Making matters worse, the communications and supply line running south to Belgium was not secure. Panzer Brigade 107 was still out there, having made one attempt to cut the Hell's Highway at the Son Bridge. But there was still time for the Allies to try for the big prize - a crossing on the Rhine River. For the men of the 1st Airborne Division, however, every ear was listening for the sound of tanks, and before long many would be asking "Is that our tanks I hear?"
