The Wings of Liberation museum commemorates the liberation of the South of The Netherlands in 1944, focusing on Operation Market Garden and the role of the 101st Airborne Division ("Screaming Eagles"). It is located near Eindhoven, close to a location of historic importance. In 1944, thousands of American soldiers landed there, either as para troopers or in gliders, so actually on the Wings of Liberation! It marked the start of the liberation of The Netherlands from WWII. This tour will walk you through some of the events of operation Market Garden, between 17 and 26 September 1944.
