On September 17th the Allies launched a massive Airborne assault to gain control of key bridges in the Netherlands. These bridges were needed to move troops and armor into Germany to bring the war to an end.
Market Garden was not a high point of the Allied operations in Europe. Soldiers from the British 1st Airborne Division and Glider Division, the US 82nd and 101st Airborne Division, and the 1st Independent Polish Parachute Brigade were all dropped in to mount the initial attack. Their purpose was to take and hold the bridges while the XXX Corps moved up Hell’s Highway.
