Super

ProTrue story, fairly accurate, exciting, moving

ConsA lot of changes of scene

Operation “Market Garden” was a bold plan – ambitious and risky. The idea was to drop US and British airborne forces German lines in Holland, to secure a string of key bridges along a route that would lead to the industrial heartland of the Ruhr. It was also necessary to try to neutralise the V2...

“Dropped at Arnham.”

published 25/05/2001

ProGreat cast, epic military scenes

ConsVery long, not always compelling
