Easy Company Tour – Market Garden & The Island

Easy Company Tour – Market Garden & The Island

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.

Then we are off to the Island to visit the iconic Schoonderlogt Farm where Lt Winters had his picture taken. We will end the day at the Crossroads area where part of Easy company took on two companies of SS soldiers

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.
