One comment on “September 27,1944 – The Drive East And The Death Of Aimee Semple McPherson

  1. An excellent and recently published account of the “bridge to far” fight is titled September Hope (the author’s name escapes me).

    The 1970’s movie recounted the crossing of the river under fire by the 504th of the 82nd Airborne, but opted not to portray the terrific slaughter that ensued. The 504th survivors of that crossing closed off their end of the bridge just as the Germans began their retreat from the other side. The troopers blood was up, and taking prisoners was not in the cards that day.
