Wasn't Winds of War fiction?
Karl Heidenreich wrote:In Band of Brothers, Chapter 4 "Replacements" you can see the 101 Division operations during the battle of Arnhem, near the Eindhoven zones. In it Easy Company tries to capture a town that´s ocuppied by the Germans. They got kicked away, even with tank support (Shermans and Cromwells) when they find a couple of German light tanks plus a Tiger which destroy all the allied armoured spearhead. It looks to me pretty honest.
