A magnificent war epic about the greatest air battle in history, when the outnumbered RAF fought off an invasion by the powerful German Luftwaffe. Packed with vivid and exciting action which used over 100 vintage aircraft in filming and boasting an all-star cast headed by Laurence Olivier.
The Bridge at Remagen:
In 1945, the Allies are making their final advance into German territory, and only one strategic bridge on the Rhine River remains in Nazi hands. Both sides have much to gain: the Germans, the lives of 50,000 soldiers stationed on the wrong side of the bridge; and the Allies, a quicker end to the war with fewer lives lost. Though both armies would fight valiantly, only one could win the heart-rending battle.
A Bridge Too Far:
In September 1944, flush with the success after the Normandy invasion, the Allies confidently launched Operation Market Garden, a bold plan to drop 35,000 British paratroops into Eastern Holland and to secure the six major bridges leading to the German border to end World War II by the end of 1944. But a combination of battlefield politics, faulty intelligence, bad luck and even worse weather led to disaster. Based on the Cornelius Ryan best-selling novel.
