Over 6,000 infantrymen, predominantly Canadian, were supported by a Canadian Armoured regiment and a strong force of Royal Navy and RAF contingents. It involved 5,000 Canadians, 1,000 British troops, and 50 US Army Rangers
Arnhem When the allies launched their final attack on April and 1945 it was a ghost town. Only German soldiers were encountered who put up a terrific fight, causing even more damage to a city already heavily damaged.
