A Bridge Too Far

In September 1944, flush with the success after the Normandy invasion, the Allies confidently launched Operation Market Garden, a bold plan to drop 35,000 British paratroops into Eastern Holland and secure the six major bridges leading to the German border, hoping to end World War II by the end of 1944. But a combination of battlefield politics, faulty intelligence, bad luck and even worse weather led to disaster. Based on the best-selling novel by Cornelius Ryan. Featuring an all-star cast and directed by Richard Attenborough.
