70 years after the battle of Arnhem
This year we celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the airborne operation that took place in Holland in September 1944.
At that time the frontline had come to a halt near the Rhine. The supply lines where thin since the Allies weren't able to use any harbors apart from those they had captured in Normandy.
The operation was an attempt to break the front open get over the Rhine, through the Siegfried line into Germany before the Germans where able to get organized.
When the operation succeeded it would mean that the allies could capture the industrial heart of Germany and if all went well end the war in 1944.
On this website we will not try to provide you with an all-inclusive report about the battle that took place. We will try to give you an impression through the recollections of men and women that where involved in this battle. We will not focus only on the battle.
