There are few stories more extraordinary than that of General Stanisław Sosabowski, commander of the Polish Parachute Brigade. After fighting fiercely against the German invaders of Poland he was captured, escaped and made his way to Britain. He later led his men at Market Garden and is perhaps most widely known for being played by Gene Hackman in A Bridge Too Far. His great grandson, Hal Sosabowski, tells the General's story, and also that of the General's son, who was instrumental in the fighting in Warsaw.A Goalhanger Films productionProduced by Vasco Andrade & Rotimi KolapoExec Producer Tony PastorTwitter: #WeHaveWays@WeHaveWaysPodWebsite: www.wehavewayspod.comEmail: wehavewayspodcast@gmail.com See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Our 9-episode miniseries on Operation Market Garden continues. On episode 69 we'll talk about the role of the 82nd Airborne. We'll cover the 82nd's objectives, command structure, and actions throughout the operation.   In broad daylight on September 17th, 1944, the men of the 82nd Airborne Division jumped into the drop zones at Groesbeek, Overasselt and Grave in Nazi-occupied Holland. The jump was a success and the paratroopers quickly assembled and moved out.   The 82nd's primary targets were the bridges at Grave, Malden, Heumen, Hatert, and Honinghutje, with the ultimate goal of the Waal rail and road bridges at Nijmegen. The division speedily captured most of its objectives, but had to fight through stiff German resistance in some areas.   The All American Division saw wild momentum swings and heavy combat. Market Garden produced one of the most dramatic moments in the storied history of the 82nd Airborne: the Waal river crossing made famous by a stunning scene in the 1977 film "A Bridge Too Far."   This episode covers all the critical moments of the 82nd during this operation. General Jim Gavin, the beloved "lead from the front" commander of the 82nd, is not spared from criticism here.   Our Market Garden miniseries began in Episode 63 and ends on Saturday, September 25th with the release of Episode 70. If you haven't been following along, we recommend you go back through on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

Episode 68: A Bridge Too Far: Is It A Good Movie? (No)

The 1977 epic blockbuster film "A Bridge Too Far," starring many of the top American actors of its day, brought Operation Market Garden into American popular culture. In fact, so much of what Americans understand about Market Garden and the way we think about that operation is rooted, at least in part, on the film.    As we continue our 9-episode, 9-day (September 17th to 25th) analysis of Operation Market Garden, we here at the 18th Airborne Corps podcast wanted to revisit that movie and explore its themes and characters. We also wanted to ask two pertinent questions: is A Bridge Too Far historically accurate? And, is it even a good movie?   There are few people better prepared to answer these questions than Dr. Russell Burgos, an Associate Professor at the National Defense University's Joint Special Operations Master of Arts program at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Russell studies the intersection of history and American pop culture, examining the impact of film on our national understanding of our military and historic battles. He and podcast host Joe Buccino discuss the film, why and how it was made, and how it's become manifest in the American psyche.   In terms of the quality of the movie: both host and guest agree that the film is too long (2 hour and 56 minutes), too slow, and introduces too many characters and themes to be enjoyable. It is, however, mostly accurate. There is value in the film as a representation of the planning, the airborne insertion, and the fighting at the bridges.   Dr. Russell Burgos joined the National Defense University in 2015 after more than 12 years as a professor at UCLA, the University of Southern California, Claremont McKenna College, and Pepperdine University.   In addition to extensive experience teaching core courses in American and international politics, globalization, Great Power competition, and political theory, Dr. Burgos has designed and taught seminar courses on U.S. national security, homeland security, globalization and international security, American foreign relations, the economics of globalization, the Iraq War, Middle East politics, and US foreign and military policy in the Persian Gulf.    Dr. Burgos has written articles and book chapters on national security policy, US Middle East policy, strategy and policy in the Persian Gulf, the effects of Special Operations Forces on regional and global stability, the teaching of international politics, and academic techniques and best practices for Professional Military Education students. He is a former Signal and Psychological Operations officer, an active wargamer, presents frequently at professional conferences, has appeared on radio, television, and podcasts and before community and service organizations in the U.S. and abroad to offer expert commentary on U.S. national security policy and strategy, and has served as a military technology and military history consultant for television and film productions.

Dana and Tom tackle one of Dana's favorite genres this month, war movies, in honor of Memorial Day, and start with one of Dana's favorites growing up, A Bridge Too Far, directed by David Attenborough; starring Sean Connery, Anthony Hopkins, Michael Caine, Elliott Gould, Gene Hackman, Robert Redford, and Laurence Olivier. Plot Summary: In 1944 as the Western Front is bogged down by supply shortages, the Allies look for a deceive victory to end the war. General Bernard Montgomery proposes Operation Market Garden which envisions 35,000 men being flown and dropped behind enemy lines in the Netherlands. Two divisions of US paratroopers the 101 and the 82 lead by Generals Maxwell Taylor (Paul Maxwell) and James Gavin (Ryan O'Neal) are responsible for securing the road and bridges as far as Nijmegen. The first British Airbourne Division, under Major-General Roy Urquhart (Sean Connery), is to land near Arnhem and hold both sides of the bridge there reinforced by a brigade of Polish paratroopers under General Stanisław Sosabowski (Gene Hackman). The Arnhem bridge is the primary target, as it serves as the last means of escape for the German forces in the Netherlands and a direct route to Germany for the Allies. The road to it, however, is only a single highway linking the various key bridges, and vehicles have to squeeze to the shoulder to pass. The drop proves troublesome, and a Battalion lead by Lt. Cor. John Frost (Anthony Hopkins) is able to reach the bridge but is soon surrounded. XXX Corps lead by Lt Colonel J.O.E. Vandeleur (Michael Caine) finds progress slowed by German resistance and the narrowness of the highway. The race is on to reach the Arnhem bridge and save the First British Airbourne.

Shane entered the Army and became a helicopter pilot. Though he didn't think he would get into NASA, a path opened for him and he applied. He says it took a few times to make it past the application process. Since that time, he has flown multiple Space Shuttle missions. He also flew on a Russian Soyuz and spent months on the International Space Station. Shane Kimbrough is now in preparation to be the Commander of a SpaceX launch sometime next year. We end the interview with Shane's view on what the future might look like for space exploration. WATCHING/STREAMING: With the passing of Sean Connery, Walt re-watched, A Bridge Too Far, on Amazon Prime. Walt began watching The FBI FIles, also on Amazon Prime. His last two recommendations include The Mandalorian's latest episode and re-watching Star Trek: Enterprise. Alan recounted his re-watching of The Avengers Infinity War and End Game back-to-back. They are phenomenal movies and a great way to bring the MCU phase three toward a close. READING: The guys have been so busy, there was nothing to discuss here this week. LISTENING: Walt suggests any Dead Heads to checkout the SiriusXM show, "The Big Steve Show." He also reminds everyone if you missed on the Halloween Spooktacular, it is now available as a bonus show on The Wilder Ride podcast. Walt is also continuing to listen to In the Red Clay podcast.

In this episode we are joined by Ryan Waters, an international, worldwide mountain climber, pole skier and owner of Mountain Professionals. Ryan's company is the only boutique guide service that leads expeditions to all Seven Summits as well as the North and South Poles. We open with how he first got into climbing and how it led him to abandon his career in geology to become a full-time guide and climber. Ryan has climbed all of the Seven Summits, which includes Everest, multiple times. He also skied to both the North and South Poles. He filmed a documentary called, "Melting: The Last Race to the Pole," and is in the midst of writing a book. His book should be released sometime in the summer of 2021. MOVIES/STREAMING: Walt is working his way through Halt and Catch Fire on Netflix. He also caught the classic WWII flick, A Bridge Too Far, also on Netflix. Ryan, when not leading adventures around the globe, likes to binge The Office, Selling Sunset and The West Wing. Alan is continuing his journey through season 6 of Star Trek: The Next Generation along with season 3 of Longmire. READING: Walt is working his way through, "Is This Something?" by Jerry Seinfeld. (Yes! He finally got it.) Ryan recommended a book called, "Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind," by Yuval Noah Harari. Both Walt and Alan were fascinated at the subject and plan to add it to their own reading lists. Alan is knee-deep in reading news, news and more news. LISTENING: Walt is going back and picking up episode of The Rocky Minute podcast. He is also enjoying the new show, ABCD:TOS with former guest, Tom Taylor, as one of the hosts. Walt also did a plug for the upcoming radio broadcast coming on Halloween night, our 6th Annual Halloween Spooktacular.

You know what’s bad? The general concept of ‘military TikTok.’ You know what’s even worse? An active duty Army lieutenant posting a Holocaust joke on his TikTok with 3 million followers. But, as we point out in our discussion, he’s only telling the kind of jokes that anyone who grew up in a majority white and Christian part of America grew up hearing. We argue that the true reckoning should be asking yourself why people think jokes like that are funny. The story about said lieutenant is here: https://www.military.com/daily-news/2020/08/31/fort-bragg-investigating-army-officer-crass-holocaust-joke-tiktok.html We do a bit of a DadChat at the beginning, but the regular discussion starts at 13:35. This week’s bonus features Nate and Milo from the Trashfuture podcast discussing British war movies about WWII, the deep national psychosis that springs from them, and why A Bridge Too Far is just a stone-cold classic.
