On March 7, 1936, German soldiers marched west across the Mainzer Rheinbrucke to reoccupy the Rhineland.

On March 7, 1945, American soldiers of the 9th Armored Division ran eastwards across the Ludendorff Bridge at Remagen being the first across the Rhine

I missed that movie. Any good ?

I remember when the Revell kit came out in 1956, but it was the M20 had a .50 MG rather than a turret.
