On Sunday September 17, in three quarters of an hour, more than 4.500 paratroopers are dropped in this area. This farm, Paulushoef, is an excellent landmark for the pilots, because the name can be seen in large letters on the roof. After the paratroopers have landed, a further 53 gliders with troops and equipment also land. Paul van Overveld is a boy of 15 and he sees it all.
