At 14:35 on September 17, 1944, Lieutenant Keith Heathcote of the Irish Guards commands “Driver, advance!” The Garden part of Operation Market Garden, the advance has started. However, more often than not the vital attacks on the flanks of XXX Corps remain unknown to the broader public. Attacks that progressed slowly and with great difficulty due to German resistance and that left the flanks of XXX Corps on their way to Nijmegen and Arnhem open, giving the Germans ample opportunity to cut off The Corridor – or Hell’s Highway, as the American called it – again and again.
Highlights: Joe’s bridge, German ambush, XXX Corps’ advance to Eindhoven, Attack 53rd Welsh on left flank, Attack 3rd Infantry Division at Lille-St-Hubert, break out by 11th Armoured Division
