Not only E Company of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment and a group of British tanks fought near Nuenen on September 20, nor was it a random or independent action. September 20 saw a planned and coordinated effort made by the British and Americans to drive the Germans away from the area east of the bridge at Son and subsequently from Nuenen. It was an effort in which several units fought over the course of two days, one of these being the famed E/506.
