December 13, 1918. Crossing the Rhine

American soldiers crossing the Rhine at Remagen, over the Ludendorff Bridge. This same bridge would be fought over fiercely in March, 1945 and was so badly damaged by German efforts and the battle itself that it would ultimately collapse.  By that time, it had served, for the second time, as a major American conduit across the Rhine.
