Destroyed trucks at Koevering after the corridor has been reopened.

During the night the Germans on the road at Koevering retreat back towards Schijndel. In the morning the Allies find their positions deserted but the road is still heavily minded with boobytraps everywhere. It takes hours to clean them all up and before traffic can start again.

Now that the British have been evacuated from Arnhem, the corridor leads to a dead end above Nijmegen.

The operation ends here.

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.
