It is almost by accident that the Americans capture the Ludendorff Bridge at Remagen on 7 March 1945. It certainly isn't part of the Allied masterplan, and Field Marshal Montgomery, who has long been planning his offensive across the Rhine, is not amused that they've stolen his thunder. But it isn't only Monty who'd like to see the Americans fall flat on their faces. The capture of a bridge over the Rhine is a symbolic slap in the face for the Fuhrer. Kapitanleutnant Hummel, commander of the Black Devils - the human torpedo division of the German Navy, would be an unlikely person to call on in this crisis. But then at this stage in the war, desperate and bizarre measures are called for.
