Eerde is the first village to be liberated by American paratroopers on September 17, 1944. Paratroopers landed here and captured, among other things, the mill at Eerde to use it as an observation post. A few days later, the village was deepened further. On September 24, German troops launched a counter-attack from the Eerdse Bergen. The mill was destroyed by the Germans. The Americans then moved their observation post to the church, but it was also destroyed in the fighting. However, Eerde remained in the hands of the Americans.

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. Listen here to the story about the liberation of Veghel.
