This captured German war film with English commentary is a documentary on an action of the elite German paratroop unit, The Fallschirmjäger, during the occupation of Holland in May 1940. This dramatic, action filled film focuses on the capture and securing of one of the strategic objectives in the defense of Holland, the massive Moerdijk bridge. It shows us how the German paratroopers seize the bridge before it can be blown by the Dutch.
