Guards Armoured Division, 8 Feb 2009
A huge hit at the box office when it was first released in 1950 for celebrated James Bond Director Terence Young, this action-packed World War Two drama follows the experiences of British and American soldiers from D-Day to the final months of the war. After the success of the Normandy landings, the British Guards Armoured Division sweeps across Europe, taking part in the liberation of Belgium before becoming entangled in the bloody German counter-attack in the Ardennes. Three soldiers are granted leave and return to their normal lives in England. But before long, they are recalled to duty and find themselves on the most perilous mission they have ever undertaken - a daring reconnaissance mission during the advance on Berlin.
