Photographs of the Rhineland campaign vividly tell the tale of Allied forces pushing hard against an ever weakening German military.
As is the case throughout the Museum, individual stories are highlighted of exceptional bravery, from officers to enlisted men. Here are three of them.
One of my favourite artifacts in the museum is this pistol, because of the story behind it. Private Terrence Kaye was an audacious but lucky man.
The Jeep is a legacy of the war, when for Allied forces it was a tough and reliable transport. Today the contemporary car is a mainstay for many drivers.
Medical care for the wounded, either military or civilian, is explored here. A nurse is seen administering care.
Some of the standard field equipment of the time for doctors and nurses is displayed.
Faces of the past, with war wounds of their own. The numbers were typical of injuries.
The end was coming. Germany was losing ground.
