    Neat video, clear and concise, with good use of archival video, animation and artwork.

    not all the men landed safely, including the leading officer. The German practice of training NCO's to lead paid off and the failure did not cripple the attack

    Had a chance to visit the fort years ago. Amazing structure but antiquated to the time period.
