In 1944, General Eisenhower's order was short and to the point: destroy the German army. WWII ASSAULT ON GERMANY recounts and reenacts the experiences of US soldiers who participated in one of history’s greatest military campaigns.
Through interviews, archival footage, and recreations, vets share graphic memories of penetrating the Siegfried Line, fighting in the Hurtgen Forest, and sewing up the industrial region known as the Ruhr Pocket. Their deeply personal stories offer a graphic view of what it was like to conquer Germany one pillbox, one troop shelter, one hilltop, and one town at a time.
