James Fenelon aimed to "fill a void in the historical record for World War II" by chronicling that war’s last major airborne operation - Operation Varsity. On the morning of March 24, 1945, 17,000 American and British paratroopers and glider infantry were dropped across the Rhine River into two enemy divisions in Nazi Germany who were expecting them. This audacious combat parachute drops successfully ruptured Germany’s last line of western defense, opening roads to the Allied forces’ drive east “into the heart of Hitler’s Reich,” culminating at the end of the war in Europe two months later.

“Four Hours of Fury,” called a “captivating, action-packed tale of heroism and triumph,” is James Fenelon's first book and is based on more ten years of research and interviews. He served as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army for more than a decade and is a graduate of the Army's Airborne, Jumpmaster and Pathfinder schools. Fenelon is a technical consultant for video games, screenplays and documentaries, and has written for World War II magazine and Britain's aviation magazine FlyPast.
