A Bridge Too Far (1977) DVD9
After successfully invading continental Europe on D-Day, the Allies sought to end the war with Germany by Christmas. British Field Marshal Montgomery planned Operation Market Garden, which would be the largest airborne assault ever attempted, with the intention of liberating Holland and seizing bridges on the German border. Using American, British and Polish forces, the operation was only supposed to last two to three days, however British forces failed to adequately secure the bridges and were overtaken and forced to withdraw by Nazi forces. Over 17,000 lost their lives during the nine-day struggle.
A Bridge Too Far, based on Cornelius Ryan's historical novel, tells the stories of the men who fought and died on both sides of the battlefield with a scope as large as the war itself.
