    Some kilometres from Nijmegen is Overloon, a place where in WW2 a terrible battle was fought. Since Normandie the Allied Armies had not had such a fight.The former battle field now is a museum.

    Really interesting museum commemorating Holland's occupation and subsequent liberation during WW2.
    Groesbeek was the site of part of Operation Market Garden. American airborne troops dropped here and captured key bridges around Nijmegen.
    In the museum are books containing the names of Allied soldiers who were killed in Holland. Very poignant !
