News from the Netherlands
R.N. Sigmondrenowned for publishing books about Operation Market-Gardenhas launched Fighting the British at Arnhem: The SS-Unterfuhrerschule Arnheim by Bob Gerritsen.
"The SS-Unterfuhrerschule Arnheim was a school for soldiers of the Waffen-SS where they were trained to become non-commissioned officers. The training was extremely demanding and rigorous. During the Battle of Arnhem the school's officers and students were chiefly deployed on the western fringes of the area so desperately defended by the 1st British Airborne Division.... It was incorporated into the Kampfgruppe von Tettau, a force raised as a direct result of the airborne landings. This force was commanded by Generalleutnant Hans von Tettau. Its main task was to destroy the British airborne forces and thwart Allied plans, both of which they managed to do.... The school fought fierce battles and suffered many casualties, eventually leading to its demise and disbandment in November 1944."
