This is a detailed examination of the logistical complications behind World War II's failed "Operation Market-Garden" that dropped Allied troops behind enemy lines in preparation for battle. The plan involves British Major General Robert Urquhart (Sean Connery) and American Brigadier General James Gavin (Ryan O'Neal) leading paratroopers on a mission to take over a road and five bridges through Holland to Germany. Meanwhile, Lt. Col. John Frost (Anthony Hopkins) will hold the critical bridge at Amhem so that British Gen. Brian Horrocks (Edward Fox) and Lt. Col. Joe Vandeleur (Michael Caine) will be able to lead troops across the bridge. However, plans go awry, and the mission turns into a disaster.
