Monument for the 82nd Airborne Division Paratroopers at Groesbeek

From D-day to VE-day

We believe that everybody should know what really happened during World War II. Sure you can find a lot of information on the internet, but we want to do it in our own way. Our goal is to make a guide for people who would like to know more than the standard WWII information and photos. This guide is for people who want to follow in the footsteps of the Allied soldiers who fought and saved the world from the Nazis. We also want to remember the heroes who bravely gave their lives so that we can live in freedom.
Of course, we didn't forget the German side of the story. We made this web site so everyone will remember exactly what that generation did.
We are working on the English translation of the site and not all is translated yet, we apologize that a lot of words are still in Dutch. But this should be solved in a couple of months. However, we definitely feel that each picture clearly speaks for itself. There are several pictures of Normandy (D-day and beyond), Market Garden (Eindhoven, Nijmegen, Arnhem), the Battle of the Bulge (Foy, Bastogne) and the battle of Alsace and Lorraine (operation Nordwind, the Colmar pocket). We also have many pictures of where the 82nd Airborne Division, 101st Airborne Division with information about Band of Brothers locations, XXX Corps and the 1st British Airborne Division had been and more.
We hope that you enjoy the pictures and please click on all of the links of each page to visit the various WWII battlefields.

Thanks for visiting our site!

We like to thank Rob Rice from for help with the translation.
