Operation Market Garden was one of the biggest allied operations in the 2nd World War. It took place in 1944. In remembrance of this 75th anniversary a part of the route this Saturday will be driven again by over 400 historic military vehicles. The route will go directly through the center of Eindhoven Eindhoven (see the site to see the route). It is expected that the vehicles will drive through Eindhoven between 12:00 and 14:00. It is definitely a unique sight that you really should go and see! Info and route here: https://omg2019.nl/en/route-south/
Extra tip: On Saturday the participants will arrive at the base camp. The base camp is located next to Schijndel on what was once Dropzone A, the location where the 2nd and 3rd battalion of the 501st Parachute Infantry landed on September 17th, 1944. Here you can the whole week have a close look at the vehicles over the week and in addition, here will be explained in an educational way on the basis of displays how things went about in the war in your own environment and how our liberators lived and worked in 1944. Tickets to see the basecamp can be bought online for € 5, or € 7 at the door. More info here: https://omg2019.nl/en/basecamp-vlagheide-2/
