A Bridge Too Far: The Failed Jeep Attack At Arnhem

A Bridge Too Far: The Failed Jeep Attack At Arnhem

The road bridge at Arnhem was to be taken in a Race to the Bridge by the Reconnaissance Squadron. However after barely 2 miles from their drop zone they ran into a German Ambush.

In this video, we are going to follow the men from the fields where they landed to the point where tragedy struck. Then we will look at the Germans in the Ambush. Who were they, where did they come from and, most importantly, why were they there.

It is a long video, shot at multiple locations with a lot of background information, so sit back and enjoy!

My name is Joris Nieuwint and I will be your tour guide! Please allow me to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about what I've been doing over the past years. For the past 10 years I've been living in Veghel, and before that, I've lived in Arnhem for almost two decades. Living so close to the battlefields meant that Operation Market Garden always had my interest and I've been studying the battles for all those years. Sharing what I've learned over the years has been my passion and becoming a tour guide was one of my dreams. Keeping the sacrifices of these men alive by telling their stories and showing the locations where it happened is my greatest passion.
