  • Collection: Operation Market Garden

Notes: You can see the chutes are different colors to designate different types of supplies. Ground is very flat and looks like England – it’s why Holland was chosen.

Notes: Bombers far into the horizon dropping supplies. Some chutes already on drop zone.

Notes: You can see 2 chutes coming out. Looks like they are turning to get out of area near Best.

Notes: 44th BG dropped to the 101st (having trouble figuring out which it was).

Notes: Not sure why they were in Holland just after Market Garden. Can see planes in air. Gets at scale of war.

Note: There are accounts from guys in the 44th of the flooded country in the Netherlands.

Notes: Labeled boundaries of drop zone and Paulshoef where the 506th landed and where 44th dropped supplies. Think the forest below is where we see some of the photos w/ bombers flying low over dense tree-filled area.

Notes: 9/18/44. Not clear which of the drop zones the 44th went to.

Notes: 44th narratives about seeing Dutch wave below. Quintessentially Dutch scene with windmills. People standing on base of windmill and on ground. Most Dutch farms had several farm houses clustered around windmill.
