One of the most successful military operations during Operation Market Garden is the rapid capture of this bridge. Lieutenant John Thompson and his group land not far from the southern approach. The rest of his company has landed much further away. Thompson decides not to wait for them and immediately storms the bridge. He achieves maximum surprise and captures the bridge undamaged. The bridge has borne his name since 2004.
