At the end of September, the American 101st Airborne Division will be transferred to the Betuwe – the stretch of land between Nijmegen and Arnhem, dubbed ‘The Island’ by Allied troops. Instead of returning to England and preparing for another airborne mission, they were ordered to defend this area during October and November 1944. On this static front, the Airbornes had to withstand fierce German counter-attacks and infiltrations, artillery shelling, dangerous patrols, rain, wind and bitter cold.
