    Default Pictures of Ludendorff Bridge from WW1

    Hi. Am new here - not sure this is the right forum - but, does anyone know where there might be pictures of the Ludendorff bridge from WW1? I believe my great-uncle sent back 4 pictures of US army supply wagons, a band, and soldiers coming across this bridge, but can only find references to the bridge from WW2.
    THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!

    Hi Katherine, welcome to the forum.

    It is the very same bridge. You can read more info about it here:

    Ludendorff Bridge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    So photos taken from it's capture in 1945 show the bridge which was built in WW1.

    Hope this helps?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thank you for the prompt reply...I guess what I was looking for is more pictures or information from anything to do with the bridge during the WW1 time frame. I can find lots of information from WW2, but not the first. I was looking for other places online where there might be pictures or information from US action during the first WW, as that's when the picture I have were taken. Thanks again!
