On Wednesday 18 September 2019 we commemorate the liberation of Eindhoven by the Allies, seventy-five years ago. This made Eindhoven the first city in the Netherlands to be liberated from the German occupation (World War II). The liberation of Eindhoven was part of Operation Market Garden that followed the advance from Normandy, where the Allies landed in occupied France on D-Day (6 June 1944).

In this lecture MG Brian E. Winski discusses the role of the 101st Airborne Division in Operation Market Garden and specifically the liberation of Eindhoven, and he sheds light on the importance of peace missions nowadays.
