In this full day tour, we will look at the exploits of the famous Easy Company of the 101st Airborne division, immortalized by the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers.
We start at the bridge at Son which was the first objective of the 506 Parachute Infantry Regiment where we will discuss the attempt to capture it and the subsequent German counterattacks.
We then head to Nuenen where the men had a day long battle against a German battle group, before moving up Hell’s Highway to Veghel. In Veghel we are going to look at the two times the Germans managed to block the corridor, to the north and to the south of the town.
