After successfully dropping on the moors north of Son on Sunday September 17, American paratroopers immediately head towards the bridge over the Wilhelmina Canal. The Americans need to capture it and then push on to Eindhoven. German guns fire at them incessantly, but they are able to reach the vicinity of the bridge. Then the Germans blow the bridge. A paratrooper describes it.
