The Vianden Bridge


image

"We built a timber trestle bridge to sit on the ruins of the Autobahn bridge that had been blasted by the retreating Germans. It was the longest fixed bridge in the First Army at the time it was done. It was thought to be a nice idea to give the bridge a name, and it was named the Vianden Bridge, because it was in the capture of Vianden in Luxembourg that fourteen of our guys were killed. Their names were posted on a big sign at each end of that bridge."
