I was cycling round there a couple of Summers back. There's loads of stuff named after the poor bastards who copped for it. John Frost Bridge, to name one. As is most of Holland there's not a stick cover - wide open spaces just built for Panzers as long as the bridges are intact. But reading around it later on it seems that there was an attempt to pin the whole fiasco on some Polish geezer. Seems par for course where top brass are concerned.
