The John Frost Bridge is the modern day replacement for the infamous Bridge Too Far from World War 2′ Operation Market Garden. This bridge was the most important and last of the bridges that the British Paratroops had to secure to make passing of the Tank Divisions from General Patterson possible and create an invasion directly into the hearth of Germany. As we know the Operation horribly failed and lots of soldiers died in Arnhem. The book and movie “A Bridge Too far” give a good impression on the event. The bridge is named after British Major General John Dutton Frost (1912–1993) who commanded the British troops defending the bridge during the Battle of Arnhem.
Down the river bank to the city center a new “boulevard” is being developed with nice cafe’s and restaurants, which gives this part of Arnhem a much nicer look, and makes it worth time to visit and pause for a while with a cup of coffee and stare across the river.
The bridge itself is not much worth looking at, just driving over it is fine. It’s just the memories…
