December 10, 1942...As the Allies paused to gather their breath and resources for their attack on Tunis, the Germans struck first. The Fifth Panzer Army sent the 86th Panzer Grenadier Regiment supported by armor on a two-pronged attack along both sides of the Medjerda river. If the Germans were to gain control of the bridge near the Bordj Toum railroad station, Combat Command B would be in danger of being cut off on the eastern side of the river...
February 11, 1944...As the initial expansion of the Allied beachhead at Anzio drew to a halt, the inevitable German counterattacks began along the Albano-Anzio highway near the Aprilia farm settlement known to the Allies as "the factory". After repeated attacks by the Germans, the factory fell as the Americans were forced to retreat. Realizing the importance of this position, the Allied command ordered an immediate counterattack by the U.S. 45th Infantry Division...
September 20, 1944...The 30th Corps had stalled at the German-held Waal River Bridge in Nijmegen. Knowing that the best way to capture a bridge was to attack both ends at once, the U.S. paratroopers made a daring daylight river assault and attacked the north end of the bridge while a task force of paratroopers, British infantry, and tanks attacked the south end in an attempt to link up and continue their drive towards Arnhem...
October 9, 1944...As the majority of the 119th Infantry Regiment advanced into North Wuerselen, they left behind a reduced company to protect their line of communication. With little chance of significant action, the bulk of the U.S. troops were deployed around a roadblock outside of Bardenberg. Suddenly, at dusk, armed German halftracks struck at the small American force...
November 4, 1944...The American Army had ripped two large holes in the Siegfried Line at Aachen and Roetgen, and continued operations with a limited flanking attack in the Huertgen Forest. The town of Schmidt fell easily, but a strong German counterattack soon followed and routed the Americans. The German attack then pressed on trying to overrun the next defense line located in the small village of Kommersheidt...

November 11, 1944...It will never be known who ordered the charge. Perhaps it was Colonel Burnette, who was mortally wounded as his men neared the 100 foot bridge. Perhaps it was simply the sight of Lt. Edwards' tanks edging across the unblown span that drew the men forward. Amidst a shower of shot and shell, a small band of brave GIs, supported by three Shermans, burst across the bridge and then hunkered down to defend the narrow approach...
December 27, 1944...Surrounded and running out of ammunition, the 101st Airborne was surviving on courage alone. A desperate plan to resupply the paratroopers was formulated. Gliders, towed by C-47s and each piloted by a single volunteer, set out not knowing if their proposed landing site was under American control...
March 15, 1945...At the same time that the SS mountain troops were striking one flank of the U.S. 357th Regiment, the Wehrmacht's 159th Division struck the other. Every effort was to be made to prevent the Americans from establishing an artillery OP in the large farm building near the river. This would insure the safe retreat of remaining German troops to the Rhine...
