A Bridge Too Far - History

September 1944. The Battle of Arnhem was one of the most audacious but ultimately controversial battles of the Second World War. Airborne drops in Holland were to secure important bridges on the route to taken by ground forces racing to gain a foothold across the Rhine. Had it succeeded it might have ended the war by Christmas 1944.

It also follows the 2nd Army in their drive up a single narrow road to relieve the beleaguered British airborne forces in Arnhem.
