Description

Description

This pack depicts SS Hauptsturmfuhrer Viktor Gräbner in his captured British Humber armoured car.

On the afternoon of the 17th of September Lieutenant Colonel Frost's 2nd Parachute Battalion approached the Arnhem road bridge. At around 1800 hours they witnessed the 40 armoured vehicles of the 9th SS Reconnaissance Battalion led by Viktor Gräbner thunder unchallenged across the bridge and head south toward Nijmegen. Only three hours earlier he was being awarded the Knight's Cross when the ceremony was interrupted when the immense Allied Airborne armada flew overhead. Gräbner received orders to reconnoitre south, towards Nijmegen.

Some 30 minutes after Gräbner's battalion had crossed the Arnhem bridge, the following unit - a company of the 10th SS Reconnaissance Battalion - ran into a surprise British Para ambush famously depicted in the film A Bridge too Far'.
