School is back in session! So dust off your history books and have a seat in your favorite chair in the classroom! All of the quiz questions will center on the following topic areas: the Normandy campaign, Operation Market Garden and the Battle of the Bulge. I had started this thread in spring of last year and had some members respond. This time, however, I hope to have more responses to the quizzes from a broader spectrum of the forum members. Now, pay attention in class, leave the girls alone and answer the following three quiz questions:
1. Which British armored division captured the port of Antwerp in September 1944?
2. Name the aircraft used to drop 82nd Airborne Division and 101st Airborne Division paratroopers into Holland during Operation Market Garden
3. Name the nine English airfields the 82nd Airborne Division used as "jumping off' points for flights into Holland during Operation Market Garden.
I will discuss with Alex the possibility of a prize for the member who answers the most questions correctly by June 6, 2015. Please answer the questions by Sunday each week because I plan to post new questions each week on Mondays.
Thanks and I look forward to everyone's involvement!
