about this piece
Artist: H. Charles McBarron, Jr. The U.S. Army in Action. Department of the Army Poster NO. 21-32
Remagen Bridgehead, 7 March 1945. Here, on the Ludendorf Bridge crossing the Rhine at Remagen, Combat Command B, 9th Armored Division--headed by the 27th Armored Infantry Battalion--with "superb skill, daring, and esprit de corps" successfully effected the first bridgehead across Germany's formidable river barrier and so contributed decisively to the defeat of the enemy. The 27th Batallion reached Remagen, found the bridge intact but mined for demolition. Although its destruction was imminent, without hesitation and in face of heavy fire the infantrymen rushed across the structure, and with energy and skill seized the surrounding high ground. The entire episode illustrates that high degree of initiative, leadership, and gallantry toward which all armies strive but too rarely attain, and won for the Combat Command the Distinguished Unit Citation.
