During this tour we will follow the trails of the soldiers who executed Operation Market Garden and faced many difficulties during the freezing Battle of the Bulge. We will see the drop zones where the Airborne Divisions landed during ‘Market’ and the sites where the ground forces fought during ‘Garden’. In Belgium we will visit Jacks Woods, which claimed many casualties during the Battle of the Bulge. We even visit Luxembourg and German territory to discover some interesting World War II sites. During six days we see where fellow nationals took important steps in the making of the nation’s history.
