Out of Ammunition, God Save the King - The Last Radio Broadcast from Arnhem Bridge



In September of 1944, the Allied leaders plotted an ambitious plan to free Nazi-occupied nations and open a way into the German capital of Berlin.

It wasn’t so much a long shot as an all-or-nothing bet. If Operation Market Garden worked, it would accelerate the end of World War II. Otherwise, it would give the Germans the time they badly needed to recover from their recent defeats.

The 1st Airborne Division landed on Dutch territory on September 17 to secure the Arnhem bridge, but faced unexpected enemy resistance that led the courageous soldiers of the 2nd Battalion to hold the bridge for four days on their own.

Their last radio broadcast was only heard by their enemies: (QUOTE) “Out of ammunition. God save the King.”
