Battlefield History TV have announced that after 2 years of filming on location, they have now completed the filming of the main 7 episodes in their Operation Market Garden series.

The first 4 of the DVDs are already available to order, with the final 3 parts due for release in 2013. For more information or to see what else is available in the BHTV range, click here.
