    An interesting blog about the crossing in 1944 of US paratroopers over the river Waal in Nijmegen. (not Maas ..oeps)
    "remember" ( ;) ) theBridgeTooFar scene with Robert Redford ?

    It shows the men that fell and where they were from in the USA.

    Interesting for me; more casualties than I imagined (but that is my fault), and interesting to see the majority of soldiers came from the north-east coast.
