    positive review  Deelgenomen aan 2 fiets- en 2 wandeltochten: Sint-Oedenrode, Best, Son en Sonse Bossen. Er is zoveel gebeurd rondom Eindhoven. Battlefield Discovery geeft deze interessante geschiedenis zeer boeiend en helder weer, aangevuld met veel details uit eigen onderzoek en er wordt verteld hoe de kleinere verhalen binnen het grote geheel passen. Kortom een aanrader voor iedereen die wil zien waar zich wat heeft afgespeeld in deze omgeving tijdens Market Garden.
