Cloud over Arnhem goes back to the tumultuous days of the Battle of Arnhem in September 1944. On 17 September the first Allied paratroopers landed not far from Oosterbeek, where Kate ter Horst lived with her family in the Old Vicarage beside the Old Church. At the request of the British airborne troops she helped set up a first-aid post in here house. Soon all rooms were crammed with wounded. Kate did what she could to help the heavily wounded British servicemen. Kate ter Horst set down her recollections immediately after the Battle of Arnhem. In Cloud over Arnhem these accounts are supplemented by numerous photographs, some previously unpublished. Journalist Willem de Bruin places the Battle of Arnhem in its historical context.
