military_lecture_iCal.jpg MILITARY LECTURE SERIES: Part 1 - The Bridge Too Far
Category Events
Start Date Thursday November 06, 2014
End Date Thursday November 06, 2014

Presented by Terry Copp, Professer Emeritus (History), Wilfrid Laurier University and Director of theLaurier Centre for Military and Stragegic Disarmament Studies, this lecture series the focus is on the time period after the Allied Victory in Nomandy.

After Normandy many believed the war would be over quickly. On 10 September Field Marshall Montgomery won Eisenhower’s support for Operation Market Garden, a plan to use three airborne divisions to seize key river crossings in the Netherlands including what became known as the Bridge too Far at Arnhem. The purpose was to cross the Rhine and attack the Ruhr, Germany’s main industrial zone. The Canadian Army thus fought its most difficult battle of the war in the southern Netherlands, with limited resources.

Location: Aboyne Hall, Wellington County Museum and Archives
Admission by donation.

Part 2 is on November 13 at 7:00 pm

Liberation and Sacrifice: Canadian Soldiers and Dutch Civilians, October 1944
