THE BRIDGE AT REMAGEN: The Amazing Story of March 7, 1945 -- The Day the Rhine River Was Crossed. 9th Armored Division. For the full story, the author also interviewed the Germans whose job it was to defend the bridge.

Click to EnlargeTHE BRIDGE AT REMAGEN: The Amazing Story of March 7, 1945 -- The Day the Rhine River Was Crossed. This long-deserved reprinting of the 1957 book by Ken Hechler tells the amazing story of how the US 9th Armored Division at Remagen crossed the Rhine and captured the Ludendorff Bridge -- the only bridge not destroyed by the Nazi's as they withdrew from the west bank of the river. The author was assigned to a combat history unit (under the renowned BG S.L.A. Marshall) and proceeded to Remagen the bridge's status was known. In this book are the personal accounts of the soldiers and junior officers of the 9th Armored Division who achieved the remarkable victory there. For the full story, the author was also able to interview the Germans whose job it was to defend the bridge, and he spent considerable time after the war discussing this with the Nazi top leaders prior to their trial at Nuremburg. Until the day the bridge was found to be intact, the war plans for crossing the Rhine had not even considered the Remagen structure. This 218-page book is extremely well researched, with many photographs and maps. Softcover.
