many people have seen the movie A Bridge Too
Far and in it is a scene where in a local cinema
General Brian Horrocks briefs his ground forces
of XXX Corps about Operation Market Garden. That
briefing took place in the cinema in Leopoldsburg
on the Belgian/Dutch border.
the cinema no longer exists there is much to see
in Leopoldsburg including the Market Garden Museum
run by the army, the Sherman tank at the station,
the Belgian and British War Cemeteries, the Resistance
Memorial and Cemetery and the beginning of the Corridor
road along which the tanks were to roll while the
airborne forces captured the bridges ahead of them.
first itinerary in our guide book starts at Leopoldsburg
and runs up the Corridor to Eindhoven crossing the
