Hey together, Im completely new here so I would like to introduce myself real quick, my friends call me Moe and im a 27 year old Soldier serving in the German military, Im half american and highly interested in all the actions that took place back in WW2 in the area where I live. Yeah well I live right in the middle of all the rhine crossings that happened near and around Wesel in Germany but my passion is all about the Airborne Operations which happend due to Operation Varsity around my old hometown Hamminkeln. I have a really good book about the whole Operation which is called "Der Krieg vor der eigenen Haustür", it explains all the Operations in really nice detail and has alot of pictures that I havent seen anywhere else yet. My plan is to visit most of the places that can be seen on the pictures and combine them with the old ones to have a direct comparison. If you walk through all the fields here you can actually still see some huge unevenesses which probably are from all the gliders and planes that crashed. I friend of mine who lives on a farm right in the middle of a landing zone digged a few holes on their fields the other days and found tons of wires (Any clue where they are from? Comms?). I basically just want to know if someone else lives in this area who can tell me a little bit more about it, Im also highly interested to know if there are any informations about crash sites in the "Disfordter Forest", according to the book alot of Transporters and Glides must have crashed inside the forest that day. I already looked up Google Earth and marked spots in the forest which are possible crash sites. I live a few minutes away from a british war cementry which burries alot of aircrews and I want to know where exactly they crashed. Thanks in advance, I highly appreciate your guys work in here, I read through a few things and its amazing.
