The recon material sat for decades, its unique view of important encounters unseen. Shot from aircraft high above the conflicts, it captures the intense action as Allied forces battled their enemies. Enriched with cutting-edge CGI graphics which create detailed contour maps of the battleground, THE LOST EVIDENCE® sheds new light on some of WWII's most important engagements.
Discovered almost by accident by secret Allied operatives, the Ludendorff Bridge in Remagen was the only intact way across the Rhine into Germany. The series of events centered around Remagen in the Spring of 1945 -- the discovery of the crucial bridge, the race to capture it before the Germans destroyed it, and the fateful Nazi delay -- undoubtedly decided the outcome of WWII in Europe.
In the latest edition of this uniquely illuminating program, THE LOST EVIDENCE® revisits the bottleneck at the Rhine and captures the entire operation -- the single largest offensive against the Germans after D-Day -- with its trademark combination of archival material and ultramodern computer modeling.
The Miracle at Remagen was one of the tensest, most surprising and thrilling episodes in WWII, and THE HISTORY CHANNEL® has reproduced it here with stunning thoroughness and accuracy.
