It is well paced with just the right balance of documentary, expert analysis (from the highly knowledgeable Frank Steer who acts both as a historian and tour guide) and accounts from veterans who were there.
It covers the background to the Operation (at the time it was the largest Airborne Operation ever launched), the men involved the tactics and the plans. Explaining in detail why the plan was put into operation, what went wrong and some of the more famous legends – from the infamous failure of the radios to the amazing river assault by the American 82nd Division.
Although it mainly concentrates on the British objective it gives enough coverage to the American involvement to explain what happened.
Well paced and just the right running length it is a must for anyone who has seen the all star cast film, read the book or just has an interest in this battle.
There are a number of Arnhem DVDs on the market, most of which are inaccurate in their choice of footage, maps and narrative. This is the best guide to the battlefield and the battle itself, not least because it includes interviews with veterans of the battle and Dutch residents.
This joins Theirs is the Glory as the must have DVD for anyone interested in the Battle of Arnhem
This is a superb long documentary which goes into amazing details.
And it is great to see the actual scenes and landscapes as they are now.
I am a very experienced fan of military history, and World war 2.
I highly recommend this, and the other titles listed below:
Hell's Highway: Operation Market Garden
Operation Market Garden: Nijmegen
