On this website you can find the recollections of veterans and civilians who took part or witnessed the events around operation market garden, the large scale allied airborne operation that took part in Holland in september 1944. This plan, made by Field Marshall Montgomery failed. The allied did not succeed in crossing the Rhine. The optimism about the allied advance ended and occupied Holland prepared for another winter under german occupation.
