About the Show
A documentary outlining how American forces achieved their objectives during Operation Market Garden, the assault that saw Allied paratroopers attack Nazi positions in the Netherlands in 1944, though the operation in its entirety failed and the British 1st Airborne at Arnhem was cut to shreds. The lightning actions of the two American airborne divisions come to life though blended archival footage, re-enactments and special effects. Discover how they parachuted in daylight on 17 September 1944, after which they seized and held their targets. These brave soldiers fought battle-hardened Germans who were committed to a ferocious fight on the borders of their Fatherland.
