Sample text

Confused fighting engulfed Lausdell but the US infantry disabled a number of German armored vehicles with bazookas and chains of mines pulled in front of advancing German columns. The German commander reinforced his spearhead and launched a concerted attack against the crossroads at 2230hrs. The Lausdell position was so vital to the American defense that all the available artillery, numbering some seven battalions with 112 howitzers, was directed to break up the attack even though radio communication with McKinley’s battalion had been lost.

MHI) Generalmajor Wadehn’s badly depleted 3rd Fallschirmjäger Division was deployed with both available regiments up front. The 9th Fallschirmjäger Regiment was assigned to seize the small village of Lanzerath, while the 5th Fallschirmjäger Regiment was assigned the capture of Krewinkel, the nominal start point of Rollbahn E. Defense of Lanzerath was nominally in the hands of a towed 3in. anti-tank gun platoon attached to the 14th Cavalry Group. However, once the initial barrage lifted, the platoon evacuated the village when it saw the German paratroopers marching down the road towards the town.

The crossroads covered the trails leading into the northern end of Rocherath from the woods. The battalion had suffered nearly 50 per cent casualties in several days of fighting at Wahlerscheid in the Roer Dams operation, and even after Co. K, 3/9th Infantry was added, the battalion was still under-strength. McKinley, the grandson and namesake of the former US president, organized bazooka teams and had his troops lay anti-tank mines along the road. The first German probe by four Jagdpanzer IV tank destroyers and infantry exited the woods after dark in the midst of a snow squall, and they evaded the Lausdell roadblock, reaching the town square in Krinkelt.
