    Gerard, that is a fantastic piece of research and story. Thank you very much for posting this update. It seems you have identified both men. May they R.I.P.

    Hello GP - welcome back again.

    Have you seen the new book of Jack Didden, "Kampfgruppe Walther and PanzerBrigade 107", which is all about the Peel area?

    Gerard - In 2016 there also appeared a Dutch book on the Liberation of Northern-Limburg, also covering the Peel area, the battle for Overloon/Venraij but also the German counterattack in the Asten-Meijel area in the last week of Oct 1944: "Waar blijven de bevrijders!, Sept - Okt 1944, frontperiode noord- en midden Limburg", written by Hugo Levels and Eric Munnicks.

    There are still copies for sale over here:

    The above title is the first of a trilogy, planned by the authors. They are currently working on the second volume, which covers the period of Nov - Dec 44, and will come out next year. I can get you in contact with one of the authors, he lives close to your area. I think he might be interested in your stories.
