This bleak World War II action drama, directed by John Guillermin, concerns the Ludendorff
Bridge at Remagen — the last remaining span across the Rhine into Germany during the final
days of the war in 1945. German General von Brock (Peter Van Eyck) is ordered to blow up the
bridge rather than let it fall into American hands. Von Brock is reluctant to carry out the
orders, however, because that would mean abandoning 50,000 soldiers to the on-coming Americans.
Putting Major Paul Kreuger (Robert Vaughn) in charge, he tells him to try to hold the bridge
as long as possible. Meanwhile, U.S. Brigadier General Skinner (E.G. Marshall) is trying to
trap the retreating Germans by making a push to the Rhine. Leading the offensive is Major
Barnes (Bradford Dillman), an officer held in contempt by most of the men. Platoon leader
Lieutenant Phil Hartman (George Segal) takes a particular dislike to him. Hartman is also
at odds with Sergeant Angela (Ben Gazzara), a scavenger who likes to steal from the corpses
of dead German soldiers. As the Americans push onward to Remagen, the Germans step up their
resistance. When the Americans reach Remagen, Krueger unsuccessfully attempts to blow up the
bridge and throws all his soldiers into a full-assault on the Americans. Skinner orders that
the American soldiers must push forward and take the bridge intact. In the face of heavy German
opposition, Hartman and Angelo find that they must put aside their differences and fight for a
common cause — to take the bridge at all costs.
