Market Garden - 82nd Airborne / Nijmegen area

Introduction

Africa, Sicily, Salerno, the Italian Mountains, Anzio, Normandy. Either as a division or as a RCB temporaliy detached from 82nd Airborne this division undoubtedly was the most experienced airborne division the allies could bring to the battlefield. In operation Market it was their job to take and hold the bridges in the Grave-Nijmegen area and capture the Groesbeek Heights to prevent the Germans from attacking via the Reichswald. Many veterans of the 82nd later told they some of the most fierce action in The Netherlands.
 
During this tour we will explore the sites where they fought and held their ground. Either by themselves or, later on, with the help of the armoured cars and tanks of XXX Corps.
