In general, the operations tor the 67th Armd Regt;. during the month ot

SDGFR.Im LINK.
1 67th A:iwl Regt. begaa. operations at O73OB as lett. co11all ot CCRBII in accord

Bn 67th AR.; let an 41st Int.; Co. nc
n
702 T.D. Bn.; with 62Dd F.A. Bn in support.
A.ctvance started from general vicinit7 FERRIERRES (S.W. lDll'DIDIER). InitialJ.
the attack was slolr in getting started due to enem.y AT guna covering the axia ot
adV&JlCe, aDi mortar tire. In addition, gasoline trucks d1d not get up to the
area in time to gas all tanka and vehicles, and this Caused scme delay in 2nd Bn
67th All being reac17 to move out. on time. P.rior to time ot attack, lst Bn 41st DF
was torced to move trcm their assembly positions due to heavy mort;ar fire 8Ii AT
gun". Advame elements moved out at 091 SB. They engaged the enelD strong-point
am forced him to withdraw. The advance progressed in good order, and when enem.r
was engaged by the advance guard, the column coiled ott the axis. In some in
stance. it was possible to see .the ccnBn rifPt column moving on our right. They
seemed to be the same type ot enemy as this force. In the advance, DI&1\V'
eDeIl' infantry were seen moviDg oft to our tlanks, and into the woods. Succeecling
elements were notifiec1. The enem.,y to the tlanks ottered no opposition and were
not pursued, as our mission was to advance and take the objectives prescribed.
By mid-da,y the column was advancing almost without. opposition. Axis ot advance
was generall1' F.ERRIERES - MESNIL ST GEORGES - FlGNIERES - ARVnLEBS - ROSIEHES
EN SANTERHE - FONTAINE LES CAPPY. At 14308, leading elements 2nd Bn began coil
ing up T1c:Ln1ty 455S65 (DOJa>IERHE) on order C.O. 67th AR. Received intormatioft
that right column had advanced about as far as this column, and were reported to
have reached ''UBP }ilase line on their axia, in the v1cinity A.SSEVILLER8. Ben.
elMnents working ahead ot advance reported on bridges crossing canal to our north.
They were also meeting eneDV opposition in form of road-blocks, and dug-in WaDtry
strong points. Ren. eleJDIm.s succeeded in clearing bridge suitable for our cross
ing, and took same prisoners. Column moved out again to crose CANAL DE LA SOI4ME.
Column cleared bridge at 2200B at 452602. Ren. elements had previousl de.tended
this bridge by heavy tighting, and cleared it .tor passage ot the armored column.
Column moved on and arrived in assembly area tor the night, at about 233<E
vicinity 534688 (HE. COMBIES). preparations tor attack next day were started

2 Sept,.: Regiment with same troops as on previous day moved outaga1n as left column
of CC"B" advance. Difficulty was experienced with getting sufticient F & L
up to the tanks and other vehicles, so they coufd be filled prior to daylight.
Due to the rapid advance, the supply route was long and much of the advance was
cross-country. Available F & L was distributed evenly', with priorit7 to the tank
and other combat vehicltfs. Shortly after moving out leading elements contacted
triendl,y Ren. elements. Order of march same as previous (see F.0.#25). Advance
ot column WaS almost without any enem.y contact, until ,mid-atternoon when leading

objective #1 and hold. that ground. At 0700A 3rd Bn 67th Aft moved out with
"I" Co 41st Inf in close support. The leading elements met strong e n e ~
opposition almost immediately from the North. Enem,v tanka were also moving
down from the North. Report received that 1st Bn 67th All was moving through
UBACH at 09001 prepared to attack towards WAURICHEN on the left of 3rd Bn
67th AR. Fierce enemy opposition started from the North and East which in
cluded AT guns, S.p. guns, and a few tanks. Enem.y artillery was heavy mak
ing it almost impossible for the Infantry eomJ:8llY' to keep up with the 3rd
Bn 67th Aft tanks. Visibility was poor and the gwmers could. not locate the
enemy gun positions. At 0940A the leading elements ot 1st Bn 67th Aft moved
up on the left ot 3rd Bn 67th AR. Jrci Bn was unable to advance at l200A
due to territic enem.r artillery tire and the e n e ~ direct fire coming from
the NE. The direction of the attack of 3rd Bn 67th AR waa changed towards
NW to take advantage ot the ground. By 1345A the leading elements had ad
vanced to K8856lO and were engaging the enelDJT guns and tanks. The leading
ele.menta ot eC-A" were also moving through UBACH towards BEGGENDORF and
area to the BE ot UBACH. The attack waa pushed relentlessJ,y and by 1430A

(high ground vic. K8966l2). The 1st Bn 67th Aft had been placed under com
mand ot Task Force #1 at 1300A. At 153M e.O. 3rd Bn 67th withdrew his
leading elements trom objective #3 to take advantage of the terrain. N"ine
(9) medi1lll tanks ot 3rd Bn had been lost up to this t iDle and it was not
practical to hold on the 3rd objective with the remainaer ot the force.
Infantry could not. give close moving support due to the terrific e n ~
artillery concentrations. 1st Bn on the left was also unable to advance.
As soon aa ee"An had cleared through objective #1, 3rd Bn 41st AJR(-2 Cos.)
waa ordered to move up to support the advance ot 3rd Bn 67th AR. Fierce
tight ing continued the entire remainder ot the afternoon with maneuvering
torces working continuously to locate and knock out the enem.v guns and
tanka. At 1700A the attack was ordered to halt in order tJlat positions.

OIl the left. and 3rd Bn 67th AR on the right, ext.ending !'ran K874608 to
K882S95. Just previousJ,y to this time a last eftort was to be made by
both 1st and 3rd Bns 67th AR, but 1st Bn 67th AR was unable to reorganize
in t:1me. Heavy friendly artillerl .fire was placed on the en8ll\Y positions
whila the elements ot Task Force #1 consolidated the positions for the
night . It was planned to continue the attack next morning to take object
ives #3 and WAURICHEN with three attacking forces; lst Bn 67th reinforced

Visibility continued to be poor. ,rd Bn 67th tanks moved out at OSl8A and
ene., opposition waa met with illlDediatell'. 1st Bn 67th was very slalr in
atart1q and did not, move out UDt;U about .1O'Ol. The 3rd Bn 41st Int. in
the ceDl;er was held. up by the heavy en.,. artil.l8ry fire. Task Force #2 on
the lett could not. advam:. until 1st Bn 67th moTed. The fighting continued

had by-passed large numbers of dug-in eneDl3' Wantry which they left for the
supporting infantry to clean out. 1st Bn 67th had ilot yet made &n1'
progress, and reported they were law on &IIIJlunition and fuel. The 3rd. Bn 67th,
after being had been ordered to make a frontal attack at
full speed. Light tanks led the attack and the enem"y positions. The,
medium tanks supported this attack and secured the objective :in rear of the
light tanks. This bold offensive action took the ellSlV by surprise and the
liJ1t tanks cog.tinued the attack while the remainder of the 3rd. Bn 67th moved
up on objective #3. SOID9 of the light taDks advanced as far as the D&mDORF
PUFFENDORF highway where they continued to engage all visible enemy guns while
continuing to move tast to avoid being hit. The light tanka were ordered
back at 1300A to the high ground vicinity objective #3 as they were too strung
out to hold the ground they had taken. Three light tanka were lost in this
}Xlase of the action. The attached Infantry following the medium.
tanks mopped up dug-in eneDl3' infantry' 'Which had been overrun by tanks. The
1st Bn, 67th was making some progress by this time towards the gro1;lDd [II ot
WAURICHUI. Message received fran CC"B" that WAURICl-I.m must be taken. Due to
the difficulty the lBt Bn 67th was having in reaching their holding line it
was decided to wait until the following morning and have the 3rd an 41st (-)
with some tanks attached attack WAURICHEN and clean it out. 1st Bn 67th did
nat completel3' consolidate their ground untU about. 2200A. 3rd Bn 4lst(-)
generalJ,y held the ground to the rear of and just South of the 1st and 3rd
Bns 67th AR. It was evident that the eneDl3' Was still in WAURICID and would
attempt. to hold the tCllll'n. Task Force #1 line for the nigbt was as follows:
lst Bn 67th AR held along the SN ot WAURICHEN along an EAST-WEST line. 3rc1

For the days action, 3rd. Bn 67th AR reported knocking out 4 eneDl3' S.p. guoa,
2 tanks, and artillery positions 'Wc:tre overrun by the light. tanks. An
unknown number of enemy were killed and about- 200 prisoners were taken. Al
though both the 1st and 3rd Bns 67th suffered almost a tank loss during
the action ot the past 3 days fighting, only about 12 or l3 tanks were des
troyed. The rema:1nd.er were all evacuated for repair.
CC"B" F.0. #51 received which generall,y ordered that posit1oDa be secured

18 January 1945
SUBJEOT: Atter Enemy Aotion Report tor December 1944.
TO : OOlDllandiDg General. 2d Armored Division, APO 252.
1. . The Arter Enemy Action Report tor the month 01' December
1944 may be divided into two periods. The period 1 - 20 December
was devoted to training, rehabilitation and orientation. The
per10d 21 - 31 December 1944 VaS employed in the movement to and
action asainst the ene., in the vicinity 01' Oiney, Belgium.
2. The opinions and observations ot the regimental start
oonoerning these two periods, ooncurred in by the undersigned
tollov: .
a. beoutive Of1'ioer. 67th Armored Regiment.
Period 1 - 20 December 1944
(1) The regiment landed on the continent in June and
up to the later part of November it vas either in
combat or alerted for oombat. One or more ot the
battal10ns ware alway. detached. and under the oommand
ot another unit. Only infrequently during this period
was lt posslble to review the status ot training ot
the battal10ns. one in relat10n to the other; or to
undergo presoribed supervised training trom a regi
mental standpoint. The need tor suoh a period was
necessitated by the numerous replacements received
as aresult of battle and non-battle losses and the
further tact that many command pcsitions were being
tllled through rapid prollOtions resulting trom battle
and losses.
(2) 1 December 19lf.4 found allot the organizations
ot the oommand under regimental control for the tirst
time slnoe landing on the cont1nent. .
(3) The period 1 - 20 Deoember was devoted to an
tensive program ot training with a view tovards: At
fecting teamwork throughout all eohelons ot command
and all ranks; Orlenting all new personnel with tadt1ce
and administration peculiar to the oommand; Permit.ting
new oommanders ot platoons, companies and battalions
to perteot themselves in the mechan1cs of the1r oommand.
(4) Oonourrently with the tra1ning program. emphaSis
... plaoed on 1ndiv1dual aDd organization d1soipline.
This period also permitted much needed time to be given
to administratlon; partioularly. awarde, courts-martial,
supply reoords, supply disoipline. salvage. maintenanoe
ot vehicle requ1sitions ot personal clothing and
equip.ent and the m&nJ other oomplexities ot unit aDd
orsanlzat10n a4m1nistr.tion.
(5) The morale ot the 1nd1v1dual &Il4 the unit as a
whole was given speoial attention 1n the ot hot

and training or a combination ot both, was responsible
tor this. The response ot the individual to the basic
trainlng incorporated ln the trainlng program was re
markable.
(6) The tralning and rehab11itation ot 1 - 20 De
cember 1944 clearly illustrated several points ot
crltlclsm and recommendatlon. Such periods are neces
sary atter extended combat operatlons in order that a
un1t may "mend lta tences" as lt were, caused by battle
losses, new replacements and new collllDallders. Such a
unlt should be removed well to the rear ot combat be
yond. the range ot enemy shell tlre or eneDIJ sneak air
attacks. The unlt should be bll1etted in hou.e., pro
v1ding adequate living apace tor every ind1vidual.
The town selected shOUld be tree ot clvilians or el.e
the clvillans be consolidated ln one sectlon of the
town. Sufticlent adJacent terraln should be readlly
accesslb1e tor actual on the ground tralnlng ot crews,
platoona and companie
Period 21 - 31 December 1944
(7) On 21 December the command was alerted tor action
and moved to the vlcinlty ot Olney, Belgium that night
under the most trylng conditlons ot blackout, raln,
snow and lcy roads. In the sub.equent action agall18t
the enemy trom 23 December to 31 December the reglllent
committed ltselt w1th dist1nct10n exh1b1t1ng team work
and coordlnatlon resulting from the battle wlse w1.dom
ot 1ts members and the r1ch reward. ot the three weeks
of or1entat10n and training.
(8) Oasualt1es lnn.1cted upon the en8ll1 w.re out- .
st&ndlns and when compared to our own los.e. further
bore out the truits ot the training 1n te.. work that
was accomp1lshed ear11er ln the month. Below 1a oom

c. 8-2, 67th Armored Regiment.
(1) The month of December 1944 except for the per10d
21 - ,1 December was spent 1n Oidtweiler, Germany out
ot contact with the enemy. In the per10d 1 - 21 De
cember tra1n1ng in secur1ty measures was emphas1zed.
Ohietly stressed were:
(a) Use ot password and reply and identit1oation
ot triendly troops by means other than the pass
word and reply.
(b) Establishment and proper oonduct ot wire
patrols as security aga1nst v1re tapp1ng.
(2) With a view toward future operations, extens1ve
stud1es ot terra1n 8&st ot the Roer R1ver, trom JU110h
northward, were made. 8aIld tables ot the area werfJ
oonstructed by battalions and compan1es for the pur
pose ot tam111ariz1ng personnel with groUnd over wh1ch
they probably would operate'.
(3) The oivil population ot 01dtweiler vas closely
observed during th1s per10d and generally 1t may be
said that the populat10n was neither overly host11e
nor tr1endly. However, it was reported by an off1cer
ot the regiment who went back to the area to inspect
tor salvage atter the regiment moved into Belgium
that open hostllity existed towards this otf1cer.
(4) Results trom the training as outlined in para
graph 1 above were apparent during the operational

to 17 Ja.nu!3.ry and rehabilitation durins the remainder
of the month.
(2) !.:!Ultitudil1.oUS problems from an 3-1 point of
view were encountered in the first period. The 2e[
iment went into combat approximately 150 men under
Tc."ble of Organization st:..'angth,- and by 17 Janua.ry
upon beins relieved, the number had increased to
340 thru combat losses, exposure, and frost 1:)i te.
No replacements were recGived during combat which
immobilized at the end thirty-t'\'lO tanks thru lack
of creliS.
(3) After many days of fierce in bitterly
cold weather, the combat efficiency of the command,
in addition to beine lowered ':Jy lack of reinforcements,
was lowered b'T frost bite and exposure. ?,very effort
was made to instruct troops in the prevention and
treat:nent 0 f frost b1te and the cC3.'.... e 0 f the feet.
Hot food and coffee was sent to the front whenever
practicable. Advantage was taken of all available
shelter in ca.ptured towns. .
(4) Morale factors were considered by daily
deliveries, a PX ration delivered to the front lines,
and the presence of ReGimental at the :sa.t
talion Aid stations. A quota of one officer and twelve
enlisted. men pulled from the front lines e.nq. ...returned
to the United states for a three monh. furlough gave
morale a definite boost. '
(5) Prisoners of war were transported to the rear
and dead bodies were evacuated by one team using one
2-1/2 ton truck and one 1/4 ton truok. Prisoners
were interrogated by a team attached from the

under very unfavorable terrain conditions--heavy

'Ie.s hilly. Also, the operation, our
tanks operated with Infantry of a regular infantry
division rather than with our own Division's Armored
Infantry. This again was a breat chan:.;e. It is srat
ifyip.i5 to report that the combat elements took all
these c'nanses in their stride and quickly adapted
themselves. This brin3s out the fact that

b. Resel'VeSj No change.
c. Activity; Harassing fire was placed on Regt1 assembly area

advance alone Garzweiler - Elfgen'- Elsen - Nolthausen -
Hemerden - Dannerhoe with ir.fantry, art1l1.3;:'J, i1.:--.d some ar
mor. In no instance was the enemy's will to resist out
standing. His art1llery was in considerable volume and
d1rect fire weapons were used. There is sound reason to
believe that many German soldiers are changing into civilian
cloth1ng in order to escape capture and then posed as Rus
sians or Poles.
d. Estimate Strength & IJleansj Means to resist are
still adequa.te, but it is doubtful if any considerable re
inforcement can be made at present.
e. Conclusions; Enemy can continue withdrawal to Rhine where
he may hope to gain enough time to resroup his forces and
assemble his means sufficiently to delay our forces over
