09 OCTOBER 1944, GIESENHECK – MAUSBACH ROAD, HÜRTGENWALD:

During the advance on Schmidt, US forces had to rely on narrow forest tracks scattered along the Kall Valley. Providing excellent opportunities for ambushes, German troops utilized the terrain for counter-attacks. On 9 October, a column from the US 9th Infantry Division encountered a German blocking position near Mausbach. Both sides rushed reinforcements to control the narrow track.

07 NOVEMBER 1944, KOMMERSCHEIDT, 2 KM NORTH OF SCHMIDT:

With November the slow and costly American advance towards Schmidt was stopped by the strong German resistance. Isolated and low on supply, the leading 28th Infantry Division switched to defense. On 7 November, the 116th Panzer Division launched an armored attack to capture the town of Kommerscheidt which was controlling the road between Schmidt and the Kall Valley.

12 SEPTEMBER 1944, AACHEN MUNICIPAL FOREST, SOUTH OF AACHEN:

On September 1944, the US forces started their attack on the westwall defenses between Aachen and Hurtgenwald. The approaches to the historic city of Aachen had been defended by a series of pillboxes scattered in the municipal forest. Without the armor support, a company of GIs from the 26th Infantry Regiment launched a night assault on a German strong-point at the edge of the woods, south of Aachen.  Download.

28 DECEMBER 1944, SADZOT, EREZEE – MANHAY ROAD, ARDENNES:

As the year came to a close the Sixth Panzer Army made one last effort to breach the American defenses between the Salm and the Ourthe. This battle took place in and around the hamlet of Sadzot which was located at Erezee – Manhay road. Elements of the Kampfgruppe Krag (2nd SS Panzer Division) overran most of the American positions with a night attack. Surprised by the ferocity of the SS attack, the Company C of the 87th Chemical Battalion and a tank destroyer platoon at Sadzot rapidly recovered and established a hold on the north side of the village. While SS troops were preparing another attack that would drive the GIs out of the village, General Hickey sent the 509th Parachute Infantry Battalion near Erezée to make an envelopment of Sadzot from west and east, but no sooner had the paratroopers deployed than they ran into Major Krag’s kampfgruppe.  Download.
