The village of Mook is in the east of the
Netherlands, approx 11kms south east of the city of Nijmegen.
The village was entered by parachutists of the 82nd U.S. Airborne
Division on 17th September, 1944; fighting continued in and around the
village for four or five days until British armoured troops completed
its liberation. The men buried in this cemetery died for the most part
either during the fighting in the vicinity in September and October
1944, or at the time of the advance into Germany in February 1945; a few
were casualties during the intervening period of artillery and patrol
activity. There are now 311, 1939-1945 Commonwealth war casualties
commemorated in this site, of these 15 are unidentified. Also
commemorated here are 11 Foreign National casualties.
