This all-star WWII epic depicts the Allied defeat at Arnhem, Holland, in September 1944 and concentrates on those assigned to capture the strategically important bridge, despite insurmountable odds...

It was planned to airdrop 35,000 US and British paratroopers into eastern Holland to secure six bridges leading to the German border, while a British ground force sped through Belgium to the bridge at Arnhem on the Rhine River. Converging, the two armies were to smash the already-damaged war-production factories of the Third Reich in the Ruhr section of Germany.

But everything went wrong: weather, bad judgment, panic, pure bad luck. The operation, which lasted nine days and had been codenamed Market Garden, was a total disaster...
