In September 1944, flush with success after the Normandy Invasion, the Allies confidently launched Operation Market Garden, a wild scheme intended to put an early end of World War II by invading Germany and smashing the Reich's war plants. However, a combination of battlefield politics, faulty intelligence, bad luck and worse weather led to disaster. An epic retelling of World War II's most tragic blunder, A Bridge Too Far, directed by Academy Award winner Richard Attenborougfh, meticulously depicts the ambitious plan which resulted in more Allied casualties than the entire Normandy landing. Painstakingly re-created on actual battlefield locations and boasting a remarkable all-star cast, A Bridge Too Far accurately recaptures the monumental scope, excitement and danger behind one of the biggest military gambles in history.

A Bridge Too Far

A vastly underrated film that depicts the events leading up to what was known as Operation Market Garden during the latter stages of WW2.It was a failed attempt by the Allied command to end the war early in late 1944. As for the film itself,director Richard Attenborough manages to accurately portray events as they happened.There are some incredible aerial shots of the "Market" operation.Some great action sequences and a long list of big name movie stars such as Robert Redford,Sean Connery,Michael Caine and Gene Hackman.Although the acting plaudits go to Dirk Bogarde and especially Edward Fox (in a Bafta winning performance) who steals almost every scene. The blu Ray transfer is excellent with very little grain and a superb audio.Highly recommend.Although I would purchase the 2 disc dvd aswell for the extras.
