Not enough air transport to drop the Poles on Day 1, unless something else is left out (The British landed the least amount of troops on Day 1. Browning did rob them of a bunch of gliders though to land his Corps HQ at Nijmegen).

Hindsight yeah, but arguably that should then also be taken into account on many of Monty's decisions, but it doesn't tend to be. Prudent, cautious - I guess the question really is if it was the right decision in this case.

Here's an odd movie - Theirs is the Glory - made it seems mostly by actual participants of the fighting at Arnhem, just after the end of the war...

Advanced Squad Leader has a Bridge Too Far campaign that I'd like to try some day. I probably don't own it yet but am not sure. Anyhow. It's Avalon Hill Historical ASL module Number 6.
