Spanning the Frontlines: European Bridges in WWII

Let's uncover the remarkable tales of three iconic World War II bridges: Pegasus, Ludendorff and Arnhem. 🌉 At Pegasus Bridge, its daring capture by British airborne forces during the pivotal ...D-Day invasion gave a strategic advantage to the Allies.
