RUPERT PENRY JONES TO LEAD WORLD WAR II ADVENTURE
Two war films for you today! First up Rupert Penry Jones, Jason Flemyng in PEGASUS BRIDGE. In the early hours of the 6th of June 1944 Allied Airborne Forces launched one of most daring assaults in history. 181 men in 6 gliders landed at night to capture two bridges vital to the success of the D-Day landings, one of these would become known as PEGASUS
BRIDGE. The men who captured and held these objectives were led by two very different young leaders. Major John Howard led the Infantry who managed to land their gliders a stone's throw from the bridge and Colonel Geoffrey Pine Coffin (Rupert Penry Jones) led the men of the 7th Parachute Battalion who occupied the surrounding ground and held off the German counter attacks.
