The problem which faced Allied planners in the autumn of 1944 was how to invade Germany and bring a swift end to the Second World War. The solution finally agreed was a highly ambitious plan – it was code-named Operation Market Garden.
Market Garden would prove to be the largest airborne operation in history. Its success would rely on paratroopers securing bridges over the Rhine and nearby rivers and canals, deep behind enemy lines and holding these until relieved by advancing armoured columns. It would be a tough challenge.
Anglia Tours’ team of experienced guides includes specialists on the Market Garden campaign. Focusing on the experience of the airborne troops cut off behind enemy lines, they will guide your group through a range of sites, so desperately fought over in mid-September 1944.
