What is the plot of The forgotten battle?
Told through the perspective of three different participants in the Battle of the Scheldt, a Dutch Axis pilot, a British air pilot and a Zeeland resistance fighter.
What is the Battle of the Scheldt?
Taking place between October 2 and November 8, 1944, the Battle of the Scheldt was a series of military operations led by the First Canadian Army and aided by Polish and British units. The objective of the operations was to seize control of the Scheldt from Axis forces and establish a sea route to Antwerp which could supply Allied forces in northwestern Europe.
The battle was one of the bloodiest and most important of the entire campaign of the First Canadian Army. During the five weeks of combat, a total of 12,873 Allied casualties were reported, half of the casualties coming from the Canadian military.
Despite the importance of the capture of the Scheldt raised by several officials of the Allied forces, British General Bernard Montgomery instead privileged the importance of what would be the disastrous military plan of Operation Market Garden.
In hindsight, if the Allied forces had given priority to the capture of the Scheldt, it could have stopped the retreat of the German 15th Army from France and aided the Allied advance in the Axis-controlled Netherlands, and therefore the invasion of Germany. Without the sea route to Antwerp, US forces could not receive the supplies needed during the invasion of the Netherlands.
