a bridge too far

Operation Market-Garden was an Allied attempt to break through the German lines and seize several bridges, with the main goal of taking the bridge over the Lower Rhine near Arnhem, in the occupied Netherlands during World War II.
Before the operation, British Lieutenant-General Frederick A.M. Browning, deputy commander of the First Allied Airborne Army told Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery: "I think we may be going a bridge too far."
