This is a 10 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - European Theater - Bridge at Remagen. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
In March 1945, with the Battle of the Bulge concluded, the US 1st Army launched Operation Lumberjack. Designed to reach the west bank of the Rhine, US troops quickly advanced on the cities of Cologne, Bonn, and Remagen. Aware that the Rhine posed the last major geographic obstacle to Allied troops, Hitler ordered the bridges over the river destroyed.
