Synopsis:
Arnhem - Battle for the Oosterbeek Perimeter is the next part in the 'Operation Market Garden'series of films from BHTV and Pen and Sword Digital and continues the story of this controversial campaign that saw lightly armed Allied paratroopers face a force of heavily armed SS Panzer troops. The film delves straight into the action, with 2 Para isolated at the Arnhem Bridge. With both 1 and 4 Para Brigades thwarted in their attempts to fight their way into Arnhem and falling back, what became the Oosterbeek Perimeter started to form around Divisional HQ at the Hartenstein Hotel.
Beaten but not defeated, the remnants of 1st Airborne Division fought an increasingly grim battle with the SS supported by reinforcements and armour rushed to Oosterbeek from all over the West. Veterans and experienced battlefield guides vividly relate their experiences and take the viewer to the scene of the action. Harrowing tales of determined flying by the RAF, desperate attempts to contact XXX Corps and to fight off flame throwing panzers are central to the story, which is startlingly vivid, with many stories that the veterans have self censored over the years adding to the mix. While the Paratroopers fought to hold the Perimeter, XXX Corps was struggling to break out from the Nijmegen Bridgehead. Gradually, their heavy guns came within range of the Perimeter and the film concludes with the Polish Drop and the epic ten mile 'Dash to Driel' across the Island' by 5th Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry. Would the rest of XXX Corps arrive before 1st Airborne Division was overwhelmed?
