Storyline

In 1944, British General Montgomery and his command were way north of the Allied line, and the Germans were holding them in that swampy position. The plan, put into operation on Sunday, September 14, 1944, was to drop two American Airborne divisions and the British First Airborne Division behind the German lines to capture the bridges which would open the way to the German plain. The British objective was Arnhem, the northernmost point of the Montgomery plan, and this film depicts in graphic detail the ordeal the "Men of Arnhem", the British First Airborne, endured. The first cast listing reads the "Survivors of the British First Airborne Divison", including a Colonel Lonsdale and a Major Gough. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

My Grandad
8 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My grandfather starred in this film, as he was battling in Arnhem. In the opening scenes he is seen in the barracks, and a picture of my grandmother can be seen on the side of his bed. Throughout the film he played many roles, as all of the German roles were played by the troops. This film is so emotional for me as i never really knew my granddad. The film is available on DVD, so i have it to watch whenever i feel alone, or indeed close to my granddad at any particular time. I hope Theirs Is The Glory makes others understand what is was like in the war. The title is appropriate as it truly was Their Glory. A very emotional and true to life film. 10/10 From me.
