Storming The Rhine in WW2 Caught on Film! (WW2 Documentary)
In early March 1945 the German Army was well on the defensive and the outcome of WW2 in Europe was in no doubt. With allied forces approaching the vital River Rhine all along Eisenhower’s ‘broad front’, German hopes were to make one last defensive stand on the east bank of that river in hopes of stalling the allies and bringing about a negotiated peace on the Western Front. Those dreams were crushed when on 7th March, against all expectation, American troops discovered and stormed a vital bridge across the Rhine at a little known town called Remagen. This is that remarkable story.
