To Denmark

The fighting is very unpredictable over the Rhine as German forces continue to put up resistance in the battle for western Germany

Churchill crosses Rhine, 26 March 1945

“With cohesion rapidly disintegrating, the Germans were organised into battle groups of anything from platoon to battalion strength: ad hoc formations ranging from pathetic Volksturm (Home Guard) to experienced SS and parachute detachments and even an officer cadet training school. Some put up token resistance and ran away. The best, including the officer cadets, fought with skill and ferocity.”

Command is resolute, the allies must not reach the Fatherland’s heart.  We are to stop the advance from Denmark.
