Lego WW2: Battle of Arnhem (Watch)

Boys will be boys, we still play with Lego but we only built different things!

This video focusses on the Battle of Arnhem, which was part of Operation Market Garden. It started on September 17th, 1944 and lasted until September 25th when the last remnants of the British 1st Airborne division and the 1st Independent Polish Parachute brigade withdrew across the Rhine river.

The video focusses on the 4 day battle at the Bridge at Arnhem, where the men of John Frosts 2nd Batallion captured the northern end of the bridge, denying it use to the Germans. They kept the Germans at bay for 3 nights and 4 days against far superior German forces which included SS units and Tiger tanks.

After all the buidlings held by the paratroopers were set afire and demolished, with countless wounded in the last remaining buildings, the British finally surrendered.

The video is created by JedAnimatonStudios an independent, one manned, filming organisation, primarily focusing on the production of Brickfilms and other forms of animations.
