This chapter covers operations from each army crossing the Rhine until the end of the war in May 1945. It highlights the encirclement of the Ruhr Pocket as well as the fighting in the Harz Mountains. It also discusses the role of cavalry in protecting the truck-mounted infantry, allowing very mobile operations. It shows how cavalry led the U.S. First and Ninth Armies to the Elbe, and the Seventh and Third Armies to Czechoslovakia and Bavaria.

Keywords:   Rhine River, Ruhr Pocket, Harz Mountains, Elbe River
