The Last Line of Defense: Battlefronts along the Rhine
Amsterdam to Basel

Adorned with medieval castles, wineries, and gorgeous landscapes, cruise along the spellbinding Rhine River. Gaze upon fairytale landscapes that were once the prime target during World War II for military planners looking to shorten the war and bring about the downfall of Nazi Germany. From 1944 through 1945, the Rhine was the most hotly contested body of water in all of Europe. There would be no premature peace or negotiated settlement with Nazi leaders. Crossing the Rhine, and bringing about Germany’s unconditional surrender would assure an enduring peace.
