About me

As a retired Royal Netherlands Army colonel and Army veteran (Baghdad, Iraq) and holder of badge 87 of the International Guild of Battlefield Guides, I will offer you a window into history by taking you along the principle locations of what is known as the Battle of Arnhem, as a part of the Allied operation Market-Garden. I will use my 39 years of army experience in tactics, strategy and doctrine as well as my personal knowledge of this battle, to provide you on the spot explanations. You will be able to visualize the situation as it most likely has occurred between September 17th and September 26th 1944, in the surroundings of and in Arnhem itself. With a special interest in the German side of this battle, I am able to provide a good inside view into both opposing forces in this battle. To enhance the experience I do prefer solo travellers and little [sensitive content]urs can be done in English and/or German as well as in Dutch of course.
