The leading assault was to be carried out by the men of D Company of the Oxs & Bucks Light Infantry commanded by Major John Howard which was part of the 6th Airborne Division. Landing three of his six gilders within a few dozen yards of the actual canal bridge itself Howard succeed in a surprise attack that defied all logic and physics .

Pegasus Bridge is a history lesson about bravery and courage – about what young men did so that people of today could live in freedom.
