      Not particularly important, but the famous Remagen Bridge

      In various WWII documentaries, the Remagen Bridge is mentioned on the Western Front. The only bridge on the Rhine that has not been solved will be mentioned. In fact, before the bridge was fully controlled, the Allies had already erected several pontoon bridges downstream. The English Channel could not resist the Allied forces, so what about a mere Rhine? And the Remagen Bridge finally collapsed a few days after it was captured. But after all, the Remagen Bridge is the only remaining bridge...

      Only you have to win

      I don't understand why so many people rate 3 stars. At least in my opinion, "Remagen Bridge" as a war movie of the 60s has all the elements it should have. The plot is tense, the scenes are grand, the characters of the two sides are depicted with flesh and blood, and the thinking about war is everywhere. . . . . . Perhaps people have become accustomed to the modern Hollywood style of storytelling, and without a romantic love story performed by a handsome man and a beautiful woman as the main...

      The bureaucracy of TMD!

      From the map, the bridge was the only way back for the Germans to retreat, and it was also a shortcut for the U.S. military to plug directly into Germany. So the bridge was given special significance by the heads of both sides.

      Office of the German leadership.

      The German marshal wanted to blow up the bridge, but the general opposed it.

      The general said: My tens of thousands of soldiers are still on the other...

      just thinking

      A rejoicing major, a weary second lieutenant, and a philistine 1st class captured an unimportant bridge with dozens of casualties. A major who sticks to his post, at all costs, hopes to complete the task, but forgets the basic duties of a soldier, and does not realize "who is the enemy" until he is executed by his own people.
      In addition, I think General Brian of Germany has an obvious tendency to let American troops cross the bridge. From his understanding of the bridge, not only did...

      Two of the most famous WWII classics about bridges in 1969! Many war films in the early years of the United States were really well shot, and they were very thought-provoking! In the first 20 years of the 21st century, when there are no classics, the rivers are...

      Barely pass. Gilleming is a very strong director, and his style is both delicate and atmospheric. Although the main scene is a bridge, there are not many large scenes that create an open space. The black ash on the face is also not worn in the close-up. The Remagen Bridge is the hub of the Rhine defense line in Germany, and it is of great significance. The two sides are the U.S. troops urged to enter by the eager officers and the dilapidated German troops. The weak strength of both sides makes...

      The war scenes of this film are not outdated even today. The impact of the armored and infantry fighting together, the destruction of cities and streets is vividly displayed in the film, and the spiritual core of the film is also clearly influenced by the Vietnam War. , it is difficult to find an answer to the question of why and for...

      The screenwriter is actually Richard Yates, who is indeed very literary. The perspective of small characters and the non-traditional handling of good and evil are wonderful, revealing the cruelty and absurdity of...

      Like the longest day, the dual perspectives of both sides of virtue and Germany are even more of the German side. The promises given by the commander changed again and again. The corpses of ordinary soldiers on the front line were stacked into a ladder for some famous officers to replace their epaulettes. It was really hard to watch. The anti-war concept in the movies was so mature half a century ago, and then what? Are there any traces of human...

    Movie plot

    This is a war story that took place at the end of World War II. A team of Allied death squads were ordered to guard the Remagen Iron Bridge, a strategically important bridge on the Rhine River in Germany. Seeing that the development of the war was unfavorable for their own side, the German army attempted to blow up the iron bridge to prevent the Allied forces from attacking, but the Allied forces did their best to capture and protect...

     "TheBridgeatRemagen:" as a work of art, this feature film has added a lot of fictional characters and plots, and the connotation is quite rich.

More than 100 German engineers guarding the town of Elbore on the other side of the river launched a suicide charge. Almost all killed! The German artillery bombarded the...

    Movie quotes

    • Gen. Von Sturmer: Why? How could it happen? Another hundred meters and the Americans would have captured the Ober Kassel Bridge.

      Gen. von Brock: It was the only escape route for our units in that sector.

      Gen. Von Sturmer: Escape route? No. A highway for the American army into the heart of Germany! In any case, the Führer has determined you shall not take such a risk again.

      Gen. von Brock: Not very likely: there's only one bridge left.

      Gen. Von Sturmer: And already it is threatened by the American forces. One breakthrough, a few hours, and this too can be lost. General von Brock, you must prepare to destroy the Remagen bridge at the earliest possible moment.

      Gen. von Brock: Destroy? We have 75,000 men who would be trapped on the other side of the Rhine.

      Gen. Von Sturmer: And if the bridge falls to the enemy, are you prepared for the consequences?

      Gen. von Brock: These men are all that's left of the 15th Army. Their only hope of salvation is that bridge!

      Gen. Von Sturmer: The 15th Army will stand or die. The Fuhrer has ordered that not one foot of our sacred soil will be yielded to the enemy.

      Gen. von Brock: Herr Feldmarschall, if orders won wars, we wouldn't now be fighting with our backs against the Rhine, we'd be dancing at the London Savoy!

    • Capt. Otto Baumann: Farce! Where are the bombers? Our reinforcements? This is the most important place in Germany, and what do we have to fight with? Old men, riff-raff, the sweepings from the road.

      Major Paul Kreuger: And you, Baumann. Will you fight as hard as you talk?

      Capt. Otto Baumann: You will find out when we attack.

    • General Shinner: We're not going to blow that bridge, Barnes, we're going to take it!

      Major Barnes: Take it?

      General Shinner: As long as it's still standing, we've got a chance. When we get out there, cut every wire and cable. Dent, alert HQ. Ask 'em to give us every available unit on the double.

      Col. Dent: Yessir.

      Major Barnes: Jesus, sir. I mean, I hate to think of our men in the middle of the bridge when they blow it.

      General Shinner: It's a crapshoot, Major. Take that bridge and we shorten the war. We're risking a hundred men, but we may save 10,000 - even 50,000! It's your chance to make history, Major! What you've got to do is throw your men across. Now, Major!
