    positive review  24-03-2019 Band of Brothers – Market Garden – Dagtour Easy Company van het 506e Parachute Infantry Regiment. Ik heb de tour voor mijn verjaardag gekregen en wat heb ik een top dagje gehad!! Speciale dank aan Edwin Popken van Battlefield Tours die geanimeerd, bevlogen en met zeer gedegen kennis ons heeft begeleid en voorzien van informatie.
