My name is Scott Revell and I am an author-historian passionate about the Battle of Arnhem. My interest in the Battle of Arnhem started when my father gave me a video for my 13th birthday called 'A Bridge to Far'. Since then the interest has only gained through the purchase of reference material over the years written by veterans and historians regarding the Battle. However, one thing I noticed early that there wasn't much written in English about the German side of the Battle. So I took it upon myself to research anything and everything regarding the Battle of Arnhem from the German Point of view. As a result this website was created 2 years ago to acknowledge the German involvement during the Battle of Arnhem.

To date I have spent 14 years in the Australian Army. The first 2 years was as an infantry soldier before being posted to the Royal Military College to undertake the Regular Army's 18 month Officer Training Course. I graduated in mid 1998 and was posted to the Royal Australian Signal Corps (RASigs). I was posted to reserve and regular Signals units around Australia with the highlight being 6 months in East Timor with INTERFET (International Forces East Timor). I am third generation military with my father spending 22 yrs with the Royal Air Force and my Grandfather serving with the British 8th Army in Africa and with an armoured unit in France during WWII. On my mother's side my Great Grandfather served at Gallipoli in 1915 with my Great Uncle serving as the Commanding Officer of the 1st Australian Stationary Hospital on the Island of Mudros during the Gallipoli Campaign.

I am still a regular member of the Australian Army as a Captain in the general reserves but the majority of my days is working in the Information Technology space. I am a Service Delivery Specialist with qualification in both Project and Service Management. I have been married to my beautiful wife for 8 years and we have two boys and live in Brisbane, Australia. I have included a couple of photos below to give you a little insight to who I am........
