Description

American forces cross the Rhine River at Coblenz to begin occupation duties in accordance with the terms of the November 1918 Armistice. A few German civilians watch the Americans march across the bridge. The Allied occupation of three bridgeheads on the eastern bank of the Rhine River eliminated Germany's historic defensive line in the West.
