Location: Arnhem. Holland.
Date: February 2006.
Remarks: Arnhems John Frost Bridge. Who knows the movie "A Bridge Too Far"? Well, here it is. In Worldwar 2 this was the bridge too far for the British troops of the 30th army . In September 1944 Fieldmarshall Montgomery planned operation Market-Garden: A quick hit and run to Berlin via the Son bridge, Grave bridge, Nijmegen bridge and the Arnhem bridge. 10.000 Paratroopers of the British 1th Airborne division landed near Arnhem. But without knewing they landed on 2 German SS Panzerdivisions. Only 2000 of them under command of Lieutenant-Colonel John Frost could reach the Arnhembridge. They fighted one of the deadliest battles in WW2. But after 2 days they could not stand at the bridge against those German tanks. Those who were left withdraw to the town of Oosterbeek where they fighted day and night for days against the Germans. With help from Polish airbornes they withdraw over the river Rhine. Only 2500 of them came back, the rest was killed, or prisoner of war............!!!
Location: Arnhem, Holland.
Date: February 2006.
Remarks: Once again the John Frost Bridge. The signpost at the right is the Pegasus, the mark of the British 1th Airborne Division. A tribute for those who gave their lives to liberate the north of the Netherlands. The whole city of Arnhem is full of tributes for those brave British paratroopers!!
The movie "A Bridge To Far " is not recorded at the Arnhem bridge but at the IJsselbridge in Deventer. That's because from the original Arnhem city around the bridge there's almost nothing left........
