In Episode 38 Counter-attack at Oosterbeek, British paratroopers continue to defend the Oosterbeek Landing Zone against German armour and infantry. And we continue our exploration of counterattacks. It is Day 4 of Operation Market Garden, 0600hrs on 20 September 1944.
https://youtu.be/Xufpi1iSj0g

Defence / Counter-attack
"If the enemy is successful anywhere, the sooner he can be counter-attacked the easier it will be to catch him disorganized and unprepared. The commander of any locality, however small, must have a plan for an immediate counter-attack by the troops at his disposal, should the enemy get inside his locality."
United Kingdom, Infantry Training - Part 1: The Infantry Battalion (1944), Section 11, paragraph 180.

United States Army, Field Manual FM7-20 Infantry Battalion (1944), Chapter 8, Section XII, Paragraph 180b.

Attack of a River Line / Attack After Crossing

https://youtu.be/rITZcaPPSCg

The Attack / Armoured units in the attack
"It may sometimes be advisable for the infantry advance to start before the tank attack is actually launched, so that the infantry can work forward to suitable positions within striking distance of the objective. Such action may also serve to cover the advance of the tanks. If this method is adopted, sufficient covering fire for the infantry must be provided to make its advance feasible."
United Kingdom, Field Service Regulations Volume 2 Operations-General (1935), Chapter VI, Section 60, Paragraph 5.

https://youtu.be/atRT3kE1WKY

Attack / The Light Tank Battalion
"Although the primary object is to gain information and not to fight, it will often be necessary for the light battalion to fight in order to obtain the information. In such cases vigorous aggressive action will usually be the best course, as this will establish a moral ascendancy over the enemy which will facilitate further reconnaissance."
United Kingdom, Mobile Division Training Pamphlet No.2, Notes on the Employment of the Tank Brigade (1938), Chapter 6, Section 1, paragraph d.

In Episode 47 Arnhem Relief Under Pressure, the Germans rely on brute force and attrition to attempt to overwhelm the British defence in Arnhem West. It is Day 5 of Operation Market Garden, 0600hrs on 21 September 1944.
https://youtu.be/RvCEsivHYLI

The Anti-Tank Platoon / Enemy Tank Tactics
"Tanks are likely to attack in large numbers with the object of breaking through and overrunning our defended localities. Extensive bombardment and dive-bombing will normally precede the launching of the attack. The attack is usually led by a mass of tanks, whose object is the destruction of our anti-tank guns; the tanks will be followed by infantry, who destroy any centres of resistance left by the tanks and exploit success. Reserve infantry and anti-tank guns may be brought up to carry out encircling attacks from a flank."
United Kingdom, Infantry Training Part VI, The Anti-Tank Platoon (1943), Section 3, Paragraph 8.

 always a little further, it may be
beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow,
 across that angry or that glimmering sea.
