9780117726505: A Bridge to Victory: Untold Story of the Bailey Bridge

Although both bridge and inventor won high acclaim during the war years, the story of Donald Bailey and how he came to design his famous bridge has never been told. "A Bridge to Victory" describes how one man's invention came to play a vital role in the theatre of war. Based on official sources as well as interviews with Sir Donald Bailey himself and stories from the men and women who produced the bridge and used it in action, it is an inspiring and highly-readable account of what was described by Field-Marshal Montgomery as "quite the best thing in that line we have ever had".
