Description: A great battle scene from the movie "A Bridge too Far". At 12:30 hours (on September 17, 1944) Lieutenant-General Horrocks received a signal that the first wave of the airborne forces had left their bases within the United Kingdom and set the time for the ground attack to start at 14:35 hours. At 14:15 hours 300 guns of the Corps artillery opened fire, firing a rolling barrage in front of XXX Corps start line that was 1 mile (1.6 km) wide and 5 miles (8.0 km) in depth. The barrage was supported by seven squadrons of RAF Hawker Typhoons firing rockets at all known German positions along the road to Valkenswaard.The advance was led by tanks and infantry of the Irish Guards and started on time when Lieutenant Keith Heathcote, commanding the lead tank, ordered his driver to advance. The lead units of the Irish Guards Group had broken out of XXX Corps bridgehead on the Meuse-Escaut canal and crossed into the Netherlands by 15:00 hours. After crossing the border the Irish Guards were ambushed by infantry and anti-tank guns dug in on both sides of the main road. Portions of the artillery barrage was refired and fresh waves of Hawker Typhoons were called in. The Guardsmen moved forward to clear the German positions, manned by elements from two German parachute battalions and two battalions of the 9th SS Division, and soon routed the German forces flanking the road. Interrogation of captured German soldiers led to some of them willingly, others after being threatened, pointing out the remaining German positions. The fighting soon died down and the advance resumed. By last light the town of Valkenswaard had been reached and occupied by the Irish Guards Group.Horrocks had expected that the Irish Guards would have been able to advance the 13 miles (21 km) to Eindhoven within two-three hours, however they had only covered 7 miles (11 km). The operation was already starting to fall behind schedule. In Valkenswaard engineers were moved up to construct a 190 foot (58 m) Class 40 Bailey bridge over a stream, which was completed within 12 hours.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075784/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Market_Garden#Day_1:_Sunday.2C_17_September_1944

Edited by Prometheus Of Videos. Sick of seeing choppy edits of the Battle of Scarif? Well look no further for the FULL space & aerial battle scenes edited into a supercut like my Space Battle of Endor video! And the big question: Which SPACE battle is better? This or the Space Battle of Endor? or perhaps you like another one more? This video is the last act of Rogue One condensed into an 8 minute super-cut from the point of view of only the ship to ship space and aerial skirmishes during the Space Battle of Scarif. Many have compared this to Return of the Jedi's Battle of Endor and debate on which one is better. For the longest time, fans and high profile sources claimed the Battle of Endor to be the greatest space battle in all of cinema. After Rogue One's release, many debate whether the Space Battle of Scarif now holds that title. Which one do you think is the best space battle? Watch this then watch the Space Battle of Endor on my other channel and compare the two! Original: https://youtu.be/xPZigWFyK2o Redux / Cleaner Edit: Description of the Battle: The Alliance fleet arrives above Scarif to support Rogue One. Overseen by Admiral Raddus in his command ship the Profundity along with numerous support ships such as corvettes, transports and frigates. The smaller attack ships include U-wings with troop reinforcements, X-wings from Red and Blue squadron, and Y-wings from Gold squadron. X-wings of Blue Squadron are ordered to escort the U-wings down to the surface of Scarif to provide reinforcements for the ground assault. 12 X-wings and a single U-wing make it through before the Shield Gate closed. Blue Squadron’s arrival provides a huge boost to the troops fighting on the ground, destroying numerous AT-ACT walkers while the U-wing provides more troops. With Blue Squadron having made it through the shield gate, the Imperial air defenses were scrambled in order to defend the Citadel Tower. Rebel X-wings engaged the numerous TIE Strikers stationed on Scarif, with both sides suffering substantial casualties. As the air battle raged on, Merrick ordered a U-wing Gunship to reinforce the overwhelmed troops on the beach while the rest of the squadron defended them from Imperial fire. Red Squadron starts a diversionary attack on the Shield Gate to give Gold Squadron an opening to heavily bomb the Shield Gate. However, Admiral Raddus realizes the firepower of the Alliance fighters aren’t enough to penetrate the Shield Gate so he diverts attention to the Star Destroyers. Endless waves of TIE fighters battered the Rebel ships. In the midst of all the chaos, Gold Leader gave an order for his squad mates to launch multiple ion torpedoes at a Star Destroyer, disabling it. Noticing the disabled capital ship, Admiral Raddus contacted a Hammerhead corvette and explained his plan to break open the shield. The Hammerhead corvette Lightmaker, commanded by Kado Oquoné, gave the order, sending his ship into the side of the disabled ship, sending it on a collision course for another one. The two Star Destroyers collided and broke apart, sending one towards Scarif, crashing into the orbital docking station that controlled the deflector shield, disabling it. With the shield down, Erso and Andor were able to successfully transmit the Death Star plans to the Alliance flagship above Scarif. Immediately after the transmission of the plans, the Death Star exited hyperspace. Grand Moff Tarkin, aware of Darth Vader's impending arrival aboard the Devastator, chose to ignore the rebel ships and instead ordered a single reactor ignition aimed at the Citadel base on Scarif. The superlaser fired, destroying the tower. Once the Alliance forces received the Death Star schematics, they attempted to escape to hyperspace. Three CR90 corvettes, one Hammerhead corvette, one GR-75 transport and a number of starfighters made the jump in time, but the others were intercepted by the Devastator as it suddenly emerged from hyperspace, obliterating a GR-75 medium transport when it crashed into it. Vader's flagship immediately opened fire, damaging the Profundity and destroying a remaining Nebulon-B frigate that was in the way while the rest of the ships scattered. Onboard the corvette Tantive IV, a Rebel Commander hands Princess Leia the plans for the Death Star and the ship jumps into hyperspace to deliver the plans with the help of Obi Wan Kenobi. Ending Rogue One and leading into A New Hope. No copyright infringement intended.

Red Dawn movie clips: http://j.mp/150RH9d BUY THE MOVIE: http://j.mp/150REu8 Don't miss the HOTTEST NEW TRAILERS: http://bit.ly/1u2y6pr CLIP DESCRIPTION: Andy's (Powers Boothe) daring assault on a Russian tank gets him killed by a grenade. FILM DESCRIPTION: Set at an indeterminate point in the future, this drama with an overt anti-communist message begins as an ostensible war movie: Russian and Cuban forces have invaded the U.S. and are viciously eliminating the inhabitants of a small town, when a group of teens escapes and plans a counterattack. Jed (Patrick Swayze), Robert (C. Thomas Howell), and six of their friends watch in amazement as soldiers parachute into their town and start shooting. The teens grab a pickup truck, stock up on supplies at the local store, and head for the hills. Meanwhile, the men in the town -- after a minimal resistance -- are rounded up and held at a drive-in theater converted into a concentration camp. The sadistic Soviet military then make them watch acclaimed Russian director Sergei Eisenstein's 1938 classic Alexander Nevsky, as their punishing rehabilitation begins. Meanwhile, after minimal resistance from the adults, a Cuban, Bella (Ron O'Neal), is put in charge and is not certain how he can really defeat the teen army. The Soviets and Cubans have so far defeated the American Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force, but these teens are really something else. After a successful ambush, the teen guerrillas gear up for future forays, when they are suddenly betrayed by one of their number and by doubts about the morality of what they are doing. Red Dawn is noteworthy for being the first movie released with the PG-13 rating, created by the MPAA after public outcry over violent content in the PG-rated Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Gremlins.

Elite special forces are some of the best-trained and most formidable units a country can boast. Whether emerging from the water to silently take out guards or storming a plane to rescue the hostages and eliminate the hostage-takers, special forces take on some of the hardest missions and live some of the most secret lives in the military world. These troops are the ones that states look to in order to get the job done.
