Tidioute WWII Reenactment
Reenacting the 1945 Battle of the bridge at Remagen, Germany
On Saturday, August 3rd, Tidioute will host thier 11th annual World War II Reenanctment but this year things will be a bit different as a new battle will be reenacted. This year the public battle will be "The Bridge at Nijmegen, Holland, - Operation Market Garden".
Some of you may remember the 1977 war movie, "A Bridge Too Far". This is the same battle that will be reenacted live in Tidioute this year. 2019 Marks the 75th anniversary of this battle. Market Garden was the largest Allied Airborne drop during WWII. This operation was planned by Bristish General Montgomery to capture three major bridges in Holland up the Rhine River. Bristish armor and infantry units would link up with American and British paratrooper divisions. Many new British and Canadian units will be attending. The 101st and 82nd Airborne units will also be represented as several hundred reenactors from all over the United States and Canada merge to bring history to life.
