The battle of fortress Eben Emael in 1940 was a game changer in military history, the first time a small number of Airborne troops, (using 11 gliders) take a huge fortress with 1100 soldiers. The fort was completed 5 years before the war, and ready for battle yet some things went wrong, on both sides, but before the German assault could have taken place a few really odd coincidences had to occur first, I have never seen this side of the story told. And thanks to local historians at the fort I can share the full story of the battle.
