They called it "Hell's Highway."

The two-lane road that stretched over the planned Allied incursion route wasn’t ideal. In many places, the shoulders were too soft for heavy vehicles, and it was lined with thick woods that would make it hard for American and British soldiers to watch for enemy action. There were nine bridges that the Allies would have to capture to secure the route. No, it wasn’t ideal, but it looked like the best chance to end World War II by Christmas of 1944.

The men and the guns that forged a path down Hell’s Highway into the heart of Hitler’s Germany are now legend. In this special segment of American Rifleman TV, host Mark Keefe IV and historical experts explain how we intended to end the war … and what went wrong.
