In the aftermath of the battle of the Ardennes in February 1945, the Allies began steps for the final assault into Germany. The Rhine represented the last major geographical barrier to the Allied advance into Germany. In the event, fortune smiled on the US Army when the 9th Armored Division unexpectedly found that the Ludendorff bridge at Remagen - the last major bridge remaining over the Rhine - had not yet been demolished by the Wehrmacht. The bridge was stormed on 7 March, and in spite of last-ditch German efforts, the bridge was seized. This book details this pivotal campaign, which secured the bridge at Remagen for the allies, and so, secured the outcome of the war.
