On September 17, 1944, the Americans captured Veghel. This was part of Operation Market Garden. Thousands of American, English and Polish paratroopers were dropped at Eindhoven and Veghel and at Nijmegen and Arnhem. In Veghel a commander of a German tank realized too late that the city had fallen into the hands of the Americans. While shooting, he made his way through Veghel to join his own troops.
