Description

Three airborne divisions and one Polish Parachute Brigade land on several locations in the Netherlands in September 1944 in order to seize the bridges around Eindhoven, Nijmegen and Arnhem. At the same time, British Second Army will attack from their positions on the Dutch-Belgian border and strike north to link up with each airborne division, taking the British Army across the Rhine to Harderwijk. This would both bottle up those units of the German Army in the western part of the Netherlands and put the British Army into a position to attack eastward into Germany. Operatie Market Garden – as this operation was dubbed – would become and still is the largest airborne operation in history. Though the execution of this plan did bring the results the Allies hoped for, the operation still captures the imagination and attention of historians and the general public alike. During this two-day tour you will visit the most iconic and most important places of Market Garden, giving you a thorough overview of the events that unfolded at the locations and how these events affected the broader battle.
