Fictional recreation of the WWII Battle of Arnhem featuring performances from soldiers who fought in the actual battle. The Battle of Arnhem occurred in September 1944, when British and American forces led by Field Marshall Montgomery attempted to cross the Rhine and establish a presence in Holland. The ensuing fighting was frantic and chaotic and gave rise to the popular movie 'A Bridge Too Far'. This earlier effort, filmed little more than a year after the battle itself and featuring men such as Stanley Maxted and Thomas Scullion who actually participated in the conflict, provides a dramatic and hard-hitting insight into the experience of war.
