Eight World War II battles are examined here from the perspective of the U.S. Army infantrymen who were facing German Panzers. The battles were chosen from those fought from August 1944 through January 1945, a time of rapid advances and intense combat. They include a variety of engagements: river crossings, defensive operations, assaults on towns, and others.The self-propelled TDs were lightly armored, open-turret vehicles mounting high velocity guns. ... Among the army ground forces the engineers filled a range of roles: heavy and light pontoon battalions, maintenance ... A reconnaissance section was attached to the engineer battalion HQ and service com- pany, so that the commanding oa€icer could formulate his own estimates for bridging or road repairs.
