This one, two or three player tactical wargame is based on the "Market Garden" operation of 1944. Montgomery's plan was to rid Holland of the Nazis and open the door to Berlin. Three allied airborne divisions were dropped behind enemy lines and attempted to capture a series of bridges for the advancing allies.

The game contains five separate scenarios, each lasting a fixed number of turns. Each day of the campaign is made up of three turns (morning, afternoon and night) and each turn is divided into three phases. The first is the mechanical phase in which motorised units can move and engage in combat. The second phase is when other units can move, and the third phase is another mechanical phase.

Despite it's age Arnhem is still one of the toughest, most atmospheric and involving wargames you could wish to own, and it set its author R.T. Smith on the road to fame and - who knows? - fortune.
