…The bridge at Remagen, which featured in a 1969 film of the same name starring George Segal, Ben Gazzara and Robert Vaughn, focusing on the heroism of the allies' final advance into Germany, could be standing again within a decade, town planners have said…

"Officials in Germany have announced plans to rebuild a bridge over the Rhine that collapsed days after its capture by US soldiers in the final weeks of the second world war."

Umm, it's not exactly like it was all our fault. The Germans did try to blow it up.

"When it collapsed, all that remained of the bridge which was built during the first world war by Russian prisoners of war to facilitate the delivery of personnel, equipment and supplies to German troops on the western front"

Perhaps Ukraine could provide them with a labor pool of authentic Russian POWS to build the new bridge.

Guessing it won't be named after Ludendorff this time around.

Bunkermeister -

I suspect they would much prefer that to being returned to the Russian Army!

Interesting. I visited it several times when I was stationed in Germany. No fanfare around either side. They are right no other bridge for miles.
