A YANK MAGAZINE article about the first Americans to cross the river Rhine following the capture of the Ludendorf Bridge at Remagen, Germany.

"One of the most striking incidents of the first day's action on the bridge was the way German snipers opened up on their own men who had been taken prisoners. As each batch of PWs was lead across the bridge, a storm of sniper fire from the surrounding hills swept its ranks. Several were killed."

Pictured on page two is a photograph of the first G.I. to make it across: Sgt. Alexander A. Drabik (1910 - 1993) of the 27th Armored Infantry Division.
