    To the people who need a little context… the allied forces were completely outmatched and had no chance of victory, the Germans were offering a kindness by being willing to accept the allies surrender.
    This is why the German is so confused when they say “we can’t accept your surrender”… he’s like “wait wut… we want you to surrender or you’re about to be annihilated”.
    It portrays the classic “stiff upper lip”, bravery and wit of the British soldiers. This movie is based on a true story too.

    The Paratrooper with the umbrella is like all the other characters of *A Bridge To Far* based off of a real paratrooper I forget his name, but he really did carry an umbrella with him into combat. The reason he did is quite funny, he was terrible at remembering the codes they used and got so tired of trying to remember them he gave up doing so. Instead he started carrying an umbrella and when asked why he did it his response was (and I’m trying to remember this correctly) “Because anyone carrying an umbrella on to the battlefield can’t be mistaken for anyone who isn’t British.”

      I should like to add that Major Digby Tatham-Warter was also a deeply honourable man. For instance, he is responsible for making sure one of his KIA fellow soldiers received a Victoria Cross (highest recognition for bravery and gallantry in the British forces).
      While he enjoyed his blood sports, like tiger hunting and boar sticking, this did not make him stand out among his peers at the time.
      What did make him stand out was that even though he raised a police force at his own expense during the 1946 Mau Mau Uprising (and fought the Kenyan Kikuyu independence fighters on several occasions) he outspokenly supported racial reconciliation and believed Africans had the right to self-government. After Kenyan independence he would devote much of his time to the development of the community around his two estates in Kenya and was quite the concern for British Intelligence because of it. Frankly speaking this was entirely extraordinary for the time.
      And by the way, about that hunting hobby? He would be instrumental in developing the modern concept of safari which is recognisable to us in the current day, where we rather prefer to photograph animals rather than shoot them. The thought cannot escape me that he had enough of the killing. A truly great, albeit deeply eccentric individual!

      Major Tatham-Digby is such a legend.
      After WW2 he was assigned in Palestine/Israel. When a convoy of Israeli militia where caught in an Ambush by Palestine militias. He, as a UN peacekeeper, drove into the gunfighter. Got off his vehicle without a weapon, just holding a small walking stick, casually walked into the firefight, waving his hands and smiling to both sides. He talked to the Israeli officer if he would need any assistance. The Israeli officer refused any help. Tathem-Digby then casually walk away waving and smiling again, much to the bafflement of the two sides fighting. He said to his assistant "I'm sure they won't shoot a person waving and smiling."😂

    Fun Fact: Apparently, it was originally Anthony Hopkins who said “We haven’t the proper facilities to take you all prisoner.” But the real life man who he was portraying, John Frost, objected fear that people would think he was just trying to big himself up. He was then asked “Would you mind being present when the line was said?” And that was alright

    Truth is stranger than fiction. The real Major Tatham-Digby would walk around wearing a Bowler hat and an Umbrella while under enemy fire. He saw the brigade's Chaplain unable to cross the street because of heavy fire. He walked over, opened the Umbrella and escorted the chaplain "Don't worry Padre. I have an umbrella."
    When the real Col. Frost (played by Anthony Hopkins) saw the movie, he said that Hopkins did it wrong when he played Frost running and crouching when evading enemy fire on the street. Even under heavy fire "We don't run around like that. We would purposely walk casually and ignore the Germans shooting. It's our way to show our contempt to them."

      @Kimberly it’s a scene from the movie A Bridge too Far which portrays the full events of Operation Market Garden quite historically.
      This scene itself is an actual close to depiction of what a British major said to the German officer sent to ask for the surrender of the Company of men set up at Arnhem bridge - more were trying to get there, but sadly failing.
      As such, being the good old lads we are, we told said officer that his offer was refused and that we’d be sticking it out a few more days - tho better said (and more historically accurately said) by the movie

      ​@Namikaze Minato No, they were invaded by the Germans in 405 CE who in turn were being pushed out by the Allemans. Which is why the French word for Germany is not Germany but Allemagne. Whereas the British were invaded by the normans and then by the French/Germanic descendants of the Vikings, so they still call it Germany and so do the Americans. Meanwhile The Netherlands and Belgium are part of the region where the language derives from Diets, so they call it Duitsland, which is what the Germans do as well (Deutschland).
      Funny how it all works, no?

Despite not being able to mass their whole division (spread out all over the countryside only some of them reached this spot) they still held their position for over a week, until they literally ran out of ammo and food. 10000 parachuted in and around the city, only 2000 made it out.

    My grandfather was in a similar situation after his unit was cut off and surrounded for 3 days. They had no food and had run out of ammo. They were fighting with bayonets and whatever weapons they could scavenge from the enemy.
    They had suffered >50% casualties and had no officers left.
    The Germans sent some guys in to parlay and the most senior NCO left (possibly my grandfather) told them, "If you want us, come and get us". The unit fought on until a relief force broke through and forced the Germans to retreat.

    The film was made from the book. When Ryan wrote it, most of those who were there were still alive and were interviewed at length. That's British, American, Polish, German, Dutch, everyone. Plenty of photos in the book, too. The dialogue quoted in the book was used in the film so it's all accurate. Also, actors in the film were chosen who looked like the people they were portraying.
    So it's all spot on.
