"A bridge too far" Arnhem by Jasen71
Arnhem Travel Guide: 483 reviews and 1,527 photos
During the Second World War the Allied forces tried to secure a bridge over the rhine in 1944 to enable the allied forces to enter Germany and end the war sooner, and into history Arnhem Bridge became 'The Bridge too Far'.
In Arnhem, only one battalion of parachute troops under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel John Frost, managed to reach the Rhine Bridge. Because it proved impossible to take the bridge, the British occupied the houses and buildings around the northern bridge ramp and awaited reinforcements, but these did not arrive.
