Screaming Eagles in Holland: The 101st Airborne Division's Defense of Hell's Highway, 22-23 September, 1944, covers the intense fighting from 22-23 September during Operation Market-Garden in and near Veghel, Holland by the American 101st Airborne Division. The 101st has battled their way to the small Dutch village of Veghel. All they need do now is await the arrival of XXX Corps on their way to Nijmegen and beyond to Arnhem. As fate would have it, the Germans planned otherwise. German armor and infantry conducted several determined attacks on the positions held by the 101st.
Operation Market-Garden is usually best remembered for the stubborn defence of the Arnhem Bridge by the British 1st Airborne. The equally important role of the two American Airborne Divisions is often neglected. Screaming Eagles in Holland covers the crucial defence of the Veghel bridges by the 101st Airborne. At Veghel, the Germans launched their most concentrated and determined effort to sever the vital supply and reinforcement route of Hell’s Highway to the embattled British 1st Airborne at Arnhem.
