Both gloves are fully matching and still attached to eachother by Original facture rope. Both gloves are clearly sized M and are both makers marked as well as marked with a Quartermaster Number. The quartermaster number relates to a production run of april 1944.
An unique oppurtunity to obtain such mint and fully matching U.S. Airborne Paratrooper Gloves.

BRIDGES ARE OURS (VOLUME 2) A Pictorial History Of The 82ND U.S. Airborne Division During Market Garden By Michel De Trez And Peter Hendrikx

BRIDGES ARE OURS (VOLUME 2) A Pictorial History Of The 82ND U.S. Airborne Division During Market Garden By Michel De Trez And Peter Hendrikx

New and long awaited release!!
Bridges are Ours” begins with the fight for the Nijmegen bridges. Roughly, five different attacks took place and each is dealt with in great detail. The main attacks on September 19 and 20, when the 2nd Battalion of the 505th Regiment, supported by British tanks, attacked both the railway and the road bridges from the south are discussed in detail. When the German defenders would not budge, the 504th Regiment was ordered to cross the Waal River in small boats, an action called by many one of the most heroic actions of WW2. De Trez and Hendrikx untangle the decision-making process of the Waal crossing and provide a detailed description, illustrated with many artifacts. After the 82nd Division accomplished all its missions, the last regiment is inserted in the fight. The 325th Glider Regiment was delayed for many days due to bad weather and dangerous planning. However, in the defensive battles that followed, the 325th Regiment played an important role.

“Bridges Are Ours” continues with the defensive battles of the 504th, 505th and 508th Regiments and its supporting artillery battalions. The activities of the glider pilots, members of the Air Force who were called upon to perform as infantry, are also covered. Many newly discovered photos tell a story of danger and misery. Units of the Division Headquarters, such as the Military Police, the Signalmen and the Medical Battalion are also well documented in “Bridges Are Ours”. The final chapter provides a critical assessment of the leading commanders of Operation Market Garden and their roles in the decision-making process and the execution of the operation. Sources in British and American archives shed new light on the historiography of Operation Market Garden.

The edition compromises a Hardback – 512 pages – 850+ photos.
