WATCH: Military Offensive on the River Rhine

In March 1945, the 21st Army Group, commanded by Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery, closed up to the River Rhine in Western Germany.

On the night of the 23/24 March, the Army Group launched an offensive to establish a bridgehead on the East bank of the river; involving both ground and airborne troops, this offensive was on a scale not seen in the North-West European theatre since the invasion of Normandy in June 1944.
