World War II – Battles for Europe is a compelling eight-part series takes you to the heart of iconic moments in the history of warfare: the D-Day landings, the ill-fated airborne operation at Arnhem, the German counterattack at the Battle of the Bulge and the dash for one of the last bridges standing across the Rhine at Remagen.
Also stylised as WWII – Battles for Europe or World War II – Battles for Europe.
September 1944 – Montgomery proposes a bold plan to cross the Rhine and encircle Germany’s industrial heartland. Operation Market Garden begins as thousands of Allied paratroopers seize key bridges, while British tanks advance up a single 100km road to link up with them. But major flaws quickly emerge in the Allied plan. Veterans of British 1st Airborne recall going ‘a bridge too far’ at Arnhem, and members of XXX Corps explain why ‘Club Route’ soon became ‘Hell’s Highway’.
