Collection of four WWII films. In 'Operation Amsterdam' (1959), a team of British experts are sent into Holland to secure valuable diamonds.

British Army Major Dillon (Tony Britton) heads into Holland with diamond experts Walter (Alexander Knox) and Jan (Peter Finch) on a mission to gather diamonds from Amsterdam dealers.

The ensuing fighting was frantic and chaotic and gave rise to the popular movie 'A Bridge Too Far'. This earlier effort, filmed little more than a year after the battle itself and featuring men such as Stanley Maxted and Thomas Scullion who actually participated in the conflict, provides a dramatic and hard-hitting insight into the experience of war.

The nuns and their priest, Father Desmaines (Michael Goodliffe), see it as their Christian duty to do what they can to save the children from the horror of the camp. Thanks to the generosity of the facility's commanding officer, Major Vittorio Spoletti (Ronald Lewis), who turns a blind eye, the enterprise hasn't been too dangerous so far. However, when the Germans, led by Colonel Erich Horsten (Albert Lieven), begin taking a greater interest, both Spoletti and the nuns find themselves in grave danger.

However, Dave and Jim object to Martout's vicious methods, and find themselves forced to outwit both him and the Nazis.
