Arnhem For Ever: A Pilgrimage

75 years ago, Allied Airborne units landed in the Netherlands. Their objective: capture the main bridges across the Rhine and its neighbouring rivers, a vital part of Montgomery's audacious plan to end World War Two by Christmas. Although a combination of bad luck and poor planning quickly doomed the operation, its legacy lives on. In this film, Arnhem veterans, and relatives of those involved in the Operation, tell the tale of the 1st British Airborne Division in September 1944: the task these soldiers faced at Arnhem, the misfortune that befell them and the desperate struggle that ensued. They revisit the site of the battle to a hero's welcome - eternal thanks for their attempt to liberate the city from Nazi tyranny 75 years ago this week.
