Theirs is the Glory earned some of the highest critical praise ever afforded a British wartime docudrama. This is the filmed record of the ill-fated and possibly the most harrowing battles of WWII the Battle of Arnhem. In September of 1944, when the Allied forces combined to force a total German retreat from Holland. The "bridge too far" at Arnhem proved to be the Waterloo of this particular strategy, due to a series of unforeseen mishaps and miscalculations. Of the 10,000 troops engaged in the offensive, 8,000 lost their lives. Without sugar-coating the disaster, the film points out the courage and sacrifice of the men involved in the mission. Brian Desmond Hurst directed Theirs is the Glory, with the majority of the cast made up of the actual survivors. Said by actual survivors to be the most accurate portrayal of the events surrounding Arnhem The basis for the film A Bridge Too Far.

He told me a story about how vivid the whole experience was for the "actors". There was a scene where two stretcher bearers had to carry a casualty on a stretcher when mortar shells started falling. There were charges placed in the ground, ready to be exploded at the right moment. The two soldiers set off carrying their casualty, and then when the charges started exploding the casualty leapt from his stretcher and dived for cover along with the other two. For these men, the war was more than just a memory.
Watching this film in the knowledge that these were the actual soldiers, in the very spot where they'd fought makes this film more moving and compelling that it could have been if professional actors had been used. Yes, the acting is a bit wooden at times, but everything else is movingly realistic.

Watch it, think about the changed lives of all those poor boys, Allied as well as Germans, and then add a sprinkling of understanding of the level of terrific hardships the Dutch population endured, think about the fatalities and bereavements, think of all the bravery and reflect!
Two things make this film very special: the fact that the actors are the actual soldiers and the final scene, in the Nissan hut.
