Kampina Airborne (English Edition)
Kampina Airborne tells the true Market Garden story of a group of more than eighty Allied glider-borne troops who were forced to make premature landings in the Dutch province of North Brabant.
Amongst these troops were men of the British 1st Airborne Division and the American 82nd and 101st Airborne Division. This book describes the ways in which these men were assisted by the local resistance after they had landed in enemy held territory, who their resistance helpers were and the places that these men were hidden. The story also includes information about the pilots and aircrew members of the U.S. IX Troop Carrier Command and the British Glider Pilot Regiment who were piloting the aircraft.
All their names are included together with detailed information about the events that took place plus their personal experiences during the period that they were in hiding in the area south of the North Brabant capital of 's-Hertogenbosch between September 17 and October 26 of 1944.
