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 F├╝hrer 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.



Gen. von Brock:
Destroy? We have 75,000 men who would be trapped on the other side of the Rhine.



Gen. Von Sturmer:
And if the bridge falls to the enemy, are you prepared for the consequences?



Gen. von Brock:
These men are all that's left of the 15th Army. Their only hope of salvation is that bridge!



Gen. Von Sturmer:
The 15th Army will stand or die. Hitler has ordered that not one foot of our sacred soil will be yielded to the enemy.



Gen. von Brock:
Herr Feldmarschall, if orders won wars, we wouldn't now be fighting with our backs against the Rhine, we'd be dancing at the London Savoy!

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?

Major Paul Kreuger:
So, Captain Baumann, I trust that in the event of an emergency, at least the explosives are in place to blow up the bridge?



Capt. Otto Baumann:
Not yet, Herr Major. It is reported that 600 kilos of high explosives are on the way. Of course, that too is only a rumor.

[Kreuger is offered a last cigarette before he is executed by firing squad. He and the Nazi Officer hear planes]



Major Paul Kreuger:
Whose?



Nazi Officer:
Enemy planes, Major.



Major Paul Kreuger:
But who is the enemy?
