2 BTN in Huertgen Forest 3 - Clearing the Hill

We have been chosen to assault the bunker. This is a tough assignment that will be costly to the TF. The bunker is surrounded by wire and minefields and the defenders will be hard to break down. I will try to attack on two fronts. The attack need to be protected by smoke screens so the accompanying battalion mortars come in handy. I'll be back as soon as we are making some progress.

2 BTN in Huertgen Forest 2 - Taking the foothill part 2

Mission successful. We managed to clear the town with only minor losses. As we carefully approached the town the Germans opened fire. We had to tread carefully not to give them easy shots. As the Germans started to break and had too few leaders to manage the rallies we attacked at surrounded the defending Germans. A lot of prisoners were taken and we could clear the town. We are now a step closer to attack the Hill 400.
