Landing Zones German Paratroopers Moerdijk Bridge

On 10 May 1940, German paratroopers landed north and south of the Moerdijk-bridges in order to capture the bridges. These actions were used in 1942 in the propaganda-movie "Sprung in den Feind".

The pictures were taken at the south side of the bridges.
