'Bring Up The PIAT!' the iconic line from the classic 1977 war movie 'A Bridge Too Far' heralds the beginning of a really interesting scene. One in which the PIAT (Projector, Infantry, Anti-Tank) takes on a German Panther. In this video we break down the iconic scene and explore just how realistic it was.
We'll also take a look at the PIAT's first screen appearance in 'Theirs Is The Glory' (1946) - a unique film that like 'A Bridge Too Far' also tells the story of Operation Market Garden.
