Tells the story of operation Market Garden. A failed attempt by the allies in the latter stages of WWII to end the war quickly by securing three bridges in Holland allowing access over the Rhine into Germany. A combination of poor allied intelligence and the presence of two crack German panzer divisions meant that the final part of this operation (the bridge in Arnhem over the Rhine) was doomed to failure.

I agree with Jenna, this movie was what classics are all about! I also recommend this movie to everyone take the time to watch it
I just got done watching this classic movie called "A Bridge too Far" starring Michael Caine, Sean Connery, Gene Hackman and Anthony Hopkins. Wow! It was great seeing how these actors worked together in this action packed war film. I recommend it to my Exhibe Flix Community. I give it 6 Stars.....
