At Eindhoven we drove to the church where the 101st met the XXX Corps. After that we went to the bridges over the river Dommel that the 506th had to capture. Unfortunately, Hell’s Highway can’t be followed in Eindhoven. The Germans bombarded this city after the liberation and the city was rebuild with a different plan. You can see the bombardment in the mini series ‘Band of Brothers’ and the movie ‘A Bridge too Far’.
At the centre of Eindhoven we took some pictures of the church and a few monuments. We also bought the book ‘Hell’s Highway’ written by George E. Koskimaki. This is a report of his own experiences and also of other veterans and the Dutch resistance.
At Tongerle, a part of Eindhoven, we found the headquarters where Winters stayed. In the meantime the soldiers had to stay outside in foxholes.
