I recommend you Watch Every Video However One of my Favourites is the Liberation of Zutphen which includes Amazing Footage of Canadian Soldiers Hunkering Down in an Observation Post and Entering the Town on Foot, by Truck and on Motorcycle. I also Enjoyed the Film Documenting the Food Flying Service in Venlo as the Quality of the Restoration is Truly Remarkable, So Good in Fact that It was Released in 4K at 60 Frames per Second.
I’d also like to Draw your Attention to the brief Video EntitledDe Bevrijding van Nederland: Viering van de Tweede Doden Herdenking in 1947 in Kleur! [AI Enhanced]“. The Last Minute of the Film shows the Commemoration of the Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery on May 5, 1947.
