Why watch this film?
Classic war movie, based on real events. A star-studded cast gathered to tell a great defeat suffered by the Allies in World War II, a moment that the victorious prefer to forget.
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 to the fighting by invading Germany and smashing the Reich's war plants. But a combination of battlefield politics, faulty intelligence, bad luck and even worse weather led to disaster beyond the Allies' darkest fears.
