The Bridge at Remagen (1969)
E.G. Marshall: Brig. Gen. Shinner
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!
