Daytour around the former fighter airbase Deelen, the largest State monument in Holland.
During ’40-45 Holland was frontline in the Airwar, during which British bombers overflew at night, and USAAF bombers by daylight on their way to targets in Germany.
This offensive forced the German Luftwaffe to build a extensive air defense, the centre of which was housed in ‘Grossraumgefechtsstand ‘ Diogenes in Schaarsbergen. Appr. 6000 aircraft came to their grieve in Holland, killing thousands.
