This new film is not a detailed day to day narrative of the operation or a document of its failures. This is the moving real story told by the actual men that were there,from their own personal viewpoint and memories. In ‘Remembering Arnhem’ we have recorded the memoirs and personal accounts of a few selected combatants, men that took part.
