Quotes

  • Gen. Von Sturmer  

    Why? How could it happen? Another hundred meters and the Americans would have captured the Ober Kassel Bridge.

  • Gen. von Brock  

    It was the only escape route for our units in that sector.

  • Gen. Von Sturmer  

    Escape route? No. A highway for the American army into the heart of Germany! In any case, the Fuhrer has determined you shall not take such a risk again.

  • Gen. von Brock  

    Not very likely: there's only one bridge left.

  • Gen. Von Sturmer  

    And already it is threatened by the American forces. One breakthrough, a few hours, and this too can be lost. General von Brock, you must prepare to destroy the Remagen bridge at the earliest possible moment.

  • Capt. Otto Baumann  

    Farce! Where are the bombers? Our reinforcements? This is the most important place in Germany, and what do we have to fight with? Old men, riff-raff, the sweepings from the road.

  • Major Paul Kreuger  

    And you, Baumann. Will you fight as hard as you talk?

  • Capt. Otto Baumann  

    You will find out when we attack.

  • General Shinner  

    We're not going to blow that bridge, Barnes, we're going to take it!

  • Major Barnes  

    Take it?

  • General Shinner  

    As long as it's still standing, we've got a chance. When we get out there, cut every wire and cable. Dent, alert HQ. Ask 'em to give us every available unit on the double.

  • Col. Dent  

    Yessir.

  • Major Barnes  

    Jesus, sir. I mean, I hate to think of our men in the middle of the bridge when they blow it.

  • General Shinner  

    It's a crapshoot, Major. Take that bridge and we shorten the war. We're risking a hundred men, but we may save 10,000 -- even 50,000! It's your chance to make history, Major! What you've got to do is throw your men across. Now, Major!

  • Lt. Phil Hartman  

    Get the men up. We're moving out.

  • Sgt. Angelo  

    Those men are tired. They'll kill us.

  • Lt. Phil Hartman  

    They're so happy we didn't find any Germans here, they want us to keep going until we do.

  • Lt. Phil Hartman  

    How do you know Stadt Beckenheim isn't crawling with Germans? What if they unload on us?

  • Major Barnes  

    Then we'll know, won't we, Lieutenant?
