Race for the Rhine Bridgesby Alexander McKee
The key to victory in World War II seemed to rest on the Rhine Bridges. The region enabled Germany's 1940 lightning defeat of the Netherlands but four years later worked to the advantage of the Allies allowing them to invade northwestern Germany. Written by a participant of the 1945 battle for the bridge, Alexander McKee's book includes maps and illustrations. This fascinating read explains how even a small place can alter the direction of history.
For a closer examination of the 1945 crossing of the Rhine, read Peter Allen's One More River.
