The Last Ridge is the Story of

...The highest mountains
...The toughest conditions
...The most extraordinary soldiers.

More than 60 years ago, the 10th Mountain Division did the impossible in the mountains of Italy, scaling a 2000 foot cliff on a cold winter night to knock the Germans from their impenetrable perch.

But the 10th Mountain did more than turn the tide for the Allies in Italy. They revolutionized winter mountain warfare abroad, transformed winter sports at home, and blazed a path of honor for generations to come. This is the remarkable story of how the 10th Mountain Division came to be. You may also see the complete program transcript here.

The Last Ridge brings the extraordinary 10th Mountain legacy to life, from the uphill battles they faced during World War II, to the remote corners of troubled Afghanistan where they patrol today, as the most deployed military division in the U.S. Army.

Produced by 10th Mountain descendent Abbie Kealy, the program was filmed extensively in Colorado, Italy, Afghanistan and Yugoslavia, with insights from over one hundred 10th Mountain soldiers.
