Was watching "A bridge too far" recently and was puzzled by a remark that General Gavin supposedly said to his Dutch aide in a scene. He was remarking that the Germans tried to take Nijmegen Bridge in 1940 and "got slaughtered". Did this actually happen? Or is it a film taking complete artistic licence? Maybe our Market Garden Chaps can shed some light on this or our "Boffins" in the Netherlands. I'm just curious.
