Airborne Commemoration - Operation Market Garden
Memorial day Airborne landings Operation Market Garden. Operation Market Garden was an allied offensive in September 1944, at the end of World War II. It is the largest operation on Dutch territory during World War II. It was largely a failure for the Allies and the Netherlands because a final bridge at Arnhem could not be taken. In part, the west of the Netherlands was not liberated and had to do with the hunger winter.
