We hebben deelgenomen aan de zéér interessante en goed verzorgde dagexcursie ''Band of Brothers Battlefield Tour'' van Battlefield Discovery o.l.v. Edwin Popken. Prima gids die van begin tot eind enthousiast, gedetailleerd en met heel veel kennis van zaken vertelde over Operatie Market Garden en in het bijzonder Easy Company/Band of Brothers. Zeker een aanrader!

We did a private tour with Edwin to see the areas where Easy Company, 506 PIR, 101 Airborne fought in Market-Garden and on the Island. He really knows his stuff and really brought the actions to life with his detailed knowledge. We have a still living member of the unit in our area and it was incredible to see where he, and the other members of the "Band of Brothers" fought. We also got to see several other of the key sites of Operation Market-Garden. I can't recommend Battlefield Discovery highly enough.

Vandaag een erg interessante wandeltocht gedaan, 327th glider infantry in de Sonse bossen. Edwin heeft veel kennis van wat er zich afgespeeld heeft in deze dagen. Erg fijn om naar te luisteren, en gebruikt duidelijke kaarten en foto's bij zijn verhaal. Echt een aanrader om zijn tours mee te maken.
