This DVD is a collection of films and newsreels on the US Army's Bridges and river crossings from post WW2, to 1971. I'm sure everyone remembers the story about of "why did the chicken crossed the road"??? To get to the other side of course. Army's throughout history always needed to figure out how and what method to use to get to the other side. This is a great historical DVD that includes many of these methods and bridges the Army used to get to the other side. We hope you'll enjoy.
