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 and covers the battle for the Best bridge at the monuments to Robert Cole and Joe Mann. Our next stop will be the windmill at Eerde where we discuss the battles in the village and the sand dunes.

Our last stop in the 101st Airborne sector will be the battle of Koevering, where Germans cut the road for over 40 hours which proved to be the final blow to the operation.

We’ll then head north to the bridge at Grave, to talk about the daring capture by a handful of men. We’ll visit the landing zones near Groesbeek where a replica Waco glider is on display before moving to Nijmegen.

There we will visit the site of the heroic Waal river crossing which we will cover in detail and we will walk across the new bridge to the monument on the south bank.

Our last stop of the day will be the road bridge at Nijmegen and talk about the 4-day battle to capture it.

By Joris

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.
