About The Battlefield Explorer Tours
We share the history of Operation Market Garden so that the torch of remembrance is passed on to the next generation. We do so by taking our clients to the battlefields of Operation Market Garden and tell the history of what happened there, tell the stories of who fought there, and explain why this still matters today. We will talk about the big picture, why the operation was launched, what the goals were and how they were to be achieved. Then we focus on what happened to the troops on the ground, what were their experiences, what decisions were made that caused the outcomes and we reflect on the human cost. By the end of the day we hope to have inspired you to pass on what you have learned, that you too will carry the torch and help keep the memories of their sacrifices alive. Let us take you to battlefields around Arnhem, Nijmegen and Eindhoven. Allow us to inspire you.

I have titled our tour Joes Bridge but it was far more than this. Joris provided a tour that gave us so much information leading up to the taking of the bridge. Our uncle was killed in World War II and Joris researched some information on his death which was priceless to us. He
