Synopsis: DISC 1 THE BATTLE OF KURSK In the Summer of 1943 more than 2,000,000 men of the German and Russian Armies and over 6,000 tanks were gathered together near the Russian town of Kursk. The scene was set for one of the war s most crucial engagements the outcome of which would have a vital bearing on the outcome of the conflict. DISC 2 EL ALAMEIN 'Before Alamein we never had a victory. After Alamein we never had a defeat.' Winston Churchill s words illustrate clearly why the two battles fought near the Egyptian coastal town in the western desert during 1942 were a turning point of World War Two. DISC 3 MONTE CASSINO During 1944, the Allies tried desperately to break through the German winter defensive line that blocked the advance to Rome. At the centre of the line was the heavily fortified town of Cassino, which was dominated by a sixth century Benedictine monastery. This imposing hilltop site became the subject of bitter controversy and a symbol of some of the most savage fighting of World War Two. DISC 4 ARNHEM OPERATION MARKET GARDEN This episode tells the tragic story of the bridge too far and the ill-fated Operation Market Garden the Allied Operation that was supposed to end World War Two in 1944. Montgomery s rather fanciful conclusion that Market Garden was 90% successful was hardly supported by the facts. The attack was a disaster. DISC 5 THE BATTLE FOR NORMANDY THE PUSH FOR CAEN In August 1944 the Falaise Gap, south-east of Caen, represented an escape route for the German forces, who were in danger of being encircled by the advancing Allied troops. The fighting in the lanes and fields was intense, as the Allies battled hard to overcome determined resistance by some 80,000 German troops. The Gap was closed on 19th August, leaving only a small pocket of German resistance that was overrun several days later. The losses for the Germans were catastrophic.
