Americans At Market Garden Battlefield Tour

Americans At Market Garden Battlefield Tour

In this full day tour, we will look at how the Americans were involved in Operation Market Garden and we will be covering locations from both the 82nd and the 101st Airborne Division.

This tour will start at the bridge in Son where we will discuss the attempt to capture it and the subsequent German attack and attempt to destroy it. Then we will visit the Joe Mann memorial, he was awarded the Medal of Honor for throwing himself on a grenade to save his buddies. Our next stop will be the windmill at Eerde where we discuss the battles that took place in and around the village as well as in the legendary sand dunes.

Our last stop in the 101st Airborne sector will be a visit to Veghel and talk about Black Friday, when the Germans cut the road for over 24 hours in an attempt to capture the town and destroy the bridges. It took every ounce of strength from the allies to stop that from happening.

We’ll then head north to the bridge at Grave, to talk about the daring capture by a handful of men. We will continue the tour at the site of the heroic Waal river crossing which we will cover in detail..

Our last stop of the day will be the road bridge at Nijmegen and talk about the four-day battle to capture it.

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.
