Sale Sold out


Commemorating the 75th anniversary of Operation Market Garden,  our exclusive design is based on historic photos of the airborne assault, the largest of World War II.

On the front, paratroopers descending. On the back, "Market Garden", "75", and the dates September 17, 1944 and September 17, 2019.

The original photos were not sharp and clear. The image, somewhat hazy, is perfect across the front of the shirt.

The shirt: A super soft 4.3 ounce t-shirt from Next Level that is 60% cotton / 40% polyester jersey and that has been pre-washed to reduce shrinkage. If you have never worn a high-quality poly-cotton shirt before, you’ll want to read this first.

Also available, a World War II on the Homefront - large print with images of 100+ WWII posters.

          History is never to be forgotten

          I am now the proud owner of the 75th anniversary of the Operation Market Garden tee shirt. This to go along with my D Day 75th anniversary tee.
          The tees are of high quality with color fast dyes.
          Some what understated just as was the Greatest Generation.
          Shipping was fast and the pricing reasonable.
          There is even a hand signed thank you card from Lee Wright of the History List.
          Your support will allow the following generations to learn, grow and hopefully become even better citizens.

          Mission Accomplished!

          The Market-Garden t-shirt is a hugely successful tribute to the largest airborne operation in history! The valiant struggle of the combined American, British and Polish airborne and British ground forces was a bold and ambitious campaign to “end the war by Christmas!” Unfortunately the mission failed to meet that goal but not for want of courage, sacrifice and tenacity of the allies. Get your Market-Garden T-Shiry today and help keep the memory of those brave troops alive!
