Three soldiers tell the true story of the mission that became known as "a bridge too far".

Operation Market Garden: a plan to capture the bridge over the Rhine at Arnhem and outflank the German front.

In all thirty five thousand airborne troops were to land, either by parachute or glider, at three drop zones and move towards their objective. As the world now knows the mission was to be 'a bridge too far' for the British forces. (pb)
