Trivia

It is ironic that the Remagen Bridge, whose capture facilitated the Allied advance into Germany in World War II was originally built during World War I to help speed the advance of German troops into France. See more »

Goofs

Toward the end of the film Maj. Paul Krüger makes his way back to army high command to speak with Generaloberst von Brock when he is arrested by the SS. Outside the Wehrmacht (Army) HQ, Several SS officers are seen wearing the famous 1930's era black SS uniforms. This is a very common mistake in many WW2 films. The Black SS uniforms were discontinued at the start of the war in 1939 and replaced by the green/grey uniform. Only Waffen SS tank crews wore black uniforms in combat. This was not, however, the all-black uniform worn by the pre-war SS, but rather a short, black waist-cut coat similar in style to that worn by tank crews in the Wehrmacht. See more »

Quotes

Major Paul Kreuger: Germany has lost four million sons.

Classic War Movie!
10 January 2006 | by JimmyCamelSee all my reviews

Very under rated war epic. Why this movie isn't just as big as the other big war movies of the 60's(the guns of Navarro /bridge to far) is probably because it was to realistic for the times! acting is good only problem is that the Germans speak a little bit to good English but the action is topnotch especially the big tank battle scene in the middle of the movie, is one of the best war scenes i've ever seen till this day!!!The Bridge scene is also very impressive with tanks that destroy huge apartment blocks! this was a big budget movie at the time you can tell you can't count the extra's walking around and the destruction is as realistic as I've ever seen !!TRULY A MUST SEE FOR WAR MOVIE LOVERS!!!
