Bridge too Far 2008 101st

Post by Midshipman Easy » Mon Sep 15, 2008 9:03 pm

The 101st area seemed very peaceful by comparison to last year when their commander (who couldn’t make it this year) drop an entire regiment on top of a German Flak battalion and another right along side.
This time the 101st came down well away from the bridge before forming up and moving on.

The defence was determined but was worn away under mortar and machine gun fire.

The Americans were not able to secure the bridge on day one but awaited reinforcements. With most of the remainer of the division on the ground they pushed the Germans back from the Son bridge and even back towards Nijmegen to aid their beleaguered comrades of the 82nd.

The Germans pulled back and hunked down around the bridge to await the arrival of XXX corps.
