Ernst-Dieter Bernhard, a pilot in Germany’s air force, or Luftwaffe, flies one of the deadliest fighter planes of World War II, the Messerschmitt Bf 109. In May of 1945, he is commissioned to destroy the last bridge left standing over the Rhine River. The Battle of Remagen would soon become one of the turning points of World War II, allowing the Allies to advance towards Berlin. “Chronicles of Courage: Stories of Wartime and Innovation” is a co-production of Vulcan Productions and NBC Learn.
