In the last days of World War II, the Allied Army desperately searched for a bridgehead across the impenetrable Rhine River, in order to launch a major assault into the center of Germany. "Bridge at Remagen" tells the true story of the battle for this last bridgehead, from both the German and American perspective.

Did You Know?
Lieutenant Phil Hartman (George Segal) was closely based on Lieutenant Karl Timmermann who led the first American units across the bridge. Timmermann was born just a hundred miles from the bridge at Remagen, in Frankfurt am Main. His mother was a local Frankfurt girl and his father was a soldier in the post-World War I US Army occupation forces, born in Nebraska to German Immigrant parents, who deserted to marry her. The father received a dishonorable discharge before returning to Nebraska with his wife and son. Karl and his younger siblings grew up in the small town of West Point, Nebraska where everyone knew of their father's dishonorable discharge, and he joined the US Army prior to the US entry into World War II, determined to restore honor to the family name, as did one brother and their sister after the US entered the war.
