'The last great heave of war,' according to Churchill, took place with the crossing of the Rhine in 1945. No invading army had crossed this great river since Napoleon's in 1805 and the task fell to Field Marshal Montgomery's 21st Army Group. Opposing them were the forces of a failing fascist regime, including battalions of old men and boys, strengthened by several formations of crack troops including paratroopers and Panzer Grenadiers. With an elaborate description of the combined Allied attack, second in magnitude only to the Normandy invasion, this book charts the history of the last great set-piece battle of the war that ultimately brought the defeat of Hitler's Nazi regime one step closer.

"The history of these last battle strongholds comes to life in a survey filled with black and white vintage photos and detailed discussions of crossing tactics and logic." --The Bookwatch Midwest Book Review

..".superbly illustrated by Howard Gerrard and period photographs, making for a most well rounded book on the subject. Not all that much has been written about the Rhine crossings, but it was a fascinating and well executed campaign that let to the end of WW2 in Europe. A superb read and one that I do recommend to you." --Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (January 2008)
