Filmsim Events in association with Gunman Airsoft proudly presents…

OPERATION MARKET GARDEN ‘The Battle for Nijmegen’

March 19-20 2011
Sennybridge, South Wales

£85 pre-booked and paid –
A deposit of £45 must be made to secure your place.

Day-4 20th September 1944
The Battle is in full swing the as has taken a down turn for the Allies. The bridge at Nijmegen has been secure but at great loss with the costly attack being known as ‘Little Omaha’. A combined British and US force has battled to secure the town and clear out all enemy, but there is no respite.

Day-5 21st September 1944
The Germans have re-enforced the defences at Ressen and have started to make counter attacks along Highway 69 ‘Hells Highway’ which is key to the whole operation. With so many Allied units still trying to find ways across the river Rhine and the battle now being fort across such a huge area, the troops at Nijmegen must dig in and be prepared for sustained German counter attack with only limited supplies and resources.

It is Vital that the Town remains in Allied Hands as the Fighting in Arnhem isn’t going well and this may end up being the main crossing point across the Rhine and into German.

As with all our battles, we don’t change History. This battle is one of many happening at the same time, but we are focusing on what may have happened in this part of ‘the Battle for Nijmegen’

More will get added.
