Market Garden

Recommended Posts

I've been to Hartenstein today, to visit the museum, see the Horsa Glider.

I have spoken with many Paratroopers from different countries: Poland, America, British, German, even some from Indonesia and Thailand were present.

Very nice.

I've been in airborne units for most of my Army career, its always great to bring the older generations back to share stories and compare equipment. Always amazes me how incredibly unsafe their equipment was compared to the advances we've made in such a relative short amount of time.

There is a channel on youtube that reviews films for historical accuracy as well as adding background to historical events. There is a review of A Bridge too far, the film about operation Market Garden. What I especially like is that even though the reviewer is British, he doesn't pull any punches with regard to our mistakes.A Bridge Too Far is a great film,
