Press trip – Operation Market Garden

In September 2017, the Netherlands commemorates the 73rd Anniversary of Operation Market Garden. In both the Dutch provinces of Northern-Brabant and Gelderland, many activities will take place that are dedicated to this operation, that ultimately failed at the ‘Bridge too Far’ in Arnhem. Liberation Route Europe is working on organising a press trip for journalists who work for national titles or ‘A-class blogs’ in either the UK, Germany, the USA or the Netherlands. This is what you can expect:
