During the Cold War, the city of Schweinfurt had the highest concentration of U.S. Army combat units in the Federal Republic of Germany. Between 1945 and 2014, more than two hundred thousand Americans had been stationed in the city. The U.S. Army 1st Brigade of the 3rd Infantry Division (nicknamed the Raider Brigade) was stationed in Schweinfurt in 1958 and remained there for the next 30+ years. In December of 1987 the 1st Brigade Headquarters was located on Conn Barracks. The brigade was assigned two tank battalions (the 2nd Battalion, 64th Armor and the 3rd Battalion 64th Armor) and two mechanized infantry battalions (the 1st Battalion 30th Infantry and the 2nd Battalion 30th Infantry). The 1st Brigade was a very powerful force that was equipped and trained to fight and destroy the Soviet Tank, Motorized Rifle and Combined Arms Armies that were stationed just a few miles away in East Germany, Czechoslovakia and Poland. NATO war-plans in 1987, in case of an attack by Warsaw Pact forces, called for the 1st Brigade to take up defensive positions Northeast of Schweinfurt between the Main River and the East German border. In December 1987, the 1st Brigade was alerted to move to its General Defense Plan Positions to defend against a pending Soviet attack; or at least that’s what the Raider Brigade Executive Officer, Lieutenant Colonel Dan West, thought. Instead, the Raider Brigade is caught up in a time warp and wakes up on the morning of 16 December 1944. LTC West and his Commander Colonel Nolen, must decide what to do when they find their brigade is located in the middle of Germany at the beginning of the Battle of the Bulge. Can they make contact with General Eisenhower’s western allied armies? Should they race for Berlin and attempt to beat the Soviets to the enemy capital? How will the Abrams M1A1 tank and the Bradley M2 Infantry Fighting Vehicle perform against the famous WWII German Panzers including the Panther and Tiger tanks? Can the brigade survive being caught between the retreating German Armies of the East and the advancing Soviet Armies? And if they do, how will this impact the outcome of WWII? Will it change history? Follow Lieutenant Colonel West and the RAIDER Brigade as they slug their way through the end of WWII and provide General Marshall and General Eisenhower a chance to reshape Eastern and Central Europe at the end of WWII.
