This has been the hardest video for us to make! Let us know if you want longer videos from now on (12-15 minutes). If there is any misinformation or anything that needs clarification please let me know and I will add it to a corrections list.Corrections:1. Spelling error at 8:22, written "arugably" instead of "arguably."2. At 7:46 we say that Jim is a Brigadier General, but he's wearing two stars on his uniform as a Major General in the portrait.3. 12:45 Should have been 107th Panzer Brigade, not division.4. Pronounced Staffordshire, not Stratfordshire.
THE BRITISH CAPTURED NIJMEGEN LISTEN Grenadier Guards Nijmegen Company
You've mispronounced Urquhart. Casts a pall.
Fool hardy to rely on infantry with a lack of AT capabilities to take on mechanised infantry and armoured units in the area.
What was Monty smoking? I'd like to have some of those
24hr delay of 30 corp?…Every day?.Read yer Bible rude bwoy.
WRONG!,the planned time for PARAs to hold was shorter than 3 days.
Staffordshire not stratfordshire.
This was the last gasp of the British Empire.The Brits desperately needed to be the big victors over Germany That they should be the ones to lead the Allies as they were the most qualified because, you know, they're British.The fact that Britain was bankrupt and incapable of offensive action on its own notwithstanding.There was not enough gas, supplies for both the Brits up north and the US and Patton in the south.So they hatched this half-assed plan using American troops and material to augment their forces for this 'big show'. When they ignored and suppressed info that 2 panzer division were near the British drop zone, that was a criminal act. Those guys, who fought like hell, were stabbed in the back by Churchill and Montgomery.
This would be useful in coh2
Kampfgruppe Lehr has proven it's superiority once again!
Angry rocket noises
Wow i did not know there was a sequel to "A Bridge too Far"
Ww1 vet at Ww2:Colonel:We'll be done by Christmas they said.We'll really mean it they said.It won't be like last time they said.
It's corps, not core.
Allies : do operation market garden
Axis: am I a joke to you???
Who tf decided to give the dumbass british operational command…..
Thanks, I'll use this for my invasion of America which won't happen, haha. -Kim
Yeah hardest wc4 europe allied level
6,854 captured commando on the 5th day of the operation ?! This shame has not yet seen Britain. When in Stalingrad 24 ordinary soldiers defended the area for 58 days from almost the entire 6th German army! And while no one surrendered to the enemy! What is the problem?
I thought I recognised this music from the beginning , I used it in an old BF3 montage
Hollywood should make a movie about this…
Read the title. Reminds you of TF2??
And this is why we use the rocket jumper and man treads,
Bone headed stupidity on Montgomery's part. Always thought so.
Urquhart is pronounced ur-cut, not Ork-hart just so you know
Montgomery wasn't the most brilliant of generals. His success in Egypt were mostly due to attrition suffered by German forces in Africa and equipment quantative supermacy
Teamfortress 2's troldier, anyone?
I like this guy he gets straight on the point and do ads later good one lad
Montgomery should never have planned this or even allowed to execute this plan.Even in they succeeded with Market Garden completely — DAMN – there is yet another river called Ijssel … still no free road going into Germany.Montgomery is just not capable of reading a map. And anybody who could read a map and approved this operation was just too willing to fight no matter what.
Of coarse it just HAS to be an American bashing the brits
Ah wanting to ebd the war by christmass now where have i heard that before
3:13 wheels aren't even moving
