Following the footsteps of the 82nd Airborne Division at Market Garden in 1944.



Graafs Kazemattenmuseum 

These two Dutch casemates were build in 1935 to protect the bridge across the Maas. The bridge was blown up in May 1940 and rebuild during the war. During Operating Market Garden (1944), Flak on one of the two casemates was taken out by a bazooka round. This action helped Lieutenant John S. Thompson and his Platoon to take the bridge which later on was named after Thompson.
