  • Field Marshal Model  

    What can you see?

  • General Ludwig  

    Nothing. But they're going to try a river assault.

  • Field Marshal Model  

    It will fail.

  • General Ludwig  

    Of course. But what do we do if it doesn't?

  • Corporal Hancock  

    Sir.

  • Major General Urquhart  

    Hancock. I've got lunatics laughing at me from the woods. My original plan has been scuppered now that the jeeps haven't arrived. My communications are completely broken down. Do you really believe any of that can be helped by a cup of tea?

  • Corporal Hancock  

    Couldn't hurt, sir.

  • Brigadier General Gavin  

    What's the best way to take a bridge?

  • Maj. Julian Cook  

    Both ends at once.

  • Brigadier General Gavin  

    I'm sending two companies across the river by boat. I need a man with very special qualities to lead.

  • Maj. Julian Cook  

    Go on, sir.

  • Brigadier General Gavin  

    He's got to be tough enough to do it and he's got to be experienced enough to do it. Plus one more thing. He's got to be dumb enough to do it... Start getting ready.

  • Lt. General Frederick 'Boy' Browning  

    I've just been on to Monty. He's very proud and pleased.

  • Major General Urquhart  

    Pleased?

  • Lt. General Frederick 'Boy' Browning  

    Of course. He thinks Market Garden was 90% successful.

  • Major General Urquhart  

    But what do you think?

  • Lt. General Frederick 'Boy' Browning  

    Well, as you know, I always felt we tried to go a bridge too far.

  • Major General Gunther Blumentritt  

    Everyone knows you have never lost a battle.

  • Field Marshall Gerd von Runstedt  

    I'm still young, give me time.
