About this Item

005880-Operations of the 736th Field Artillery Battalion, XX Corps Artillery (3rd U.S. Army) In the Capture of the City of Metz, France, 2-20 November 1944 (Rhineland Campaign) 54 Pages 1949 (Personal Experience of a Battalion Assistant S-2 Survey Officer) During the latter half of August 1944, the newly operational Third United States Army under its colorful leader, General George S. Patton, Jr., made its famous drive across France. To the north of the Army zone, XX Corps, commanded by Major General Walton A. Walker, was slowed down at Verdun, France, on 31 August by an acute gasoline shortage. XII Corps making a parallel drive a few miles south had also run short of gasoline. Sufficient gasoline was furnished to reconnaissance elements, however, to enable them to reach the Moselle River during the period 1-3 September 1944. These patrols brought back the information that the city of Metz and the river were being prepared for defense by the retreating Germans. By 5 September 1944, gasoline was again available and XX Corps, on direction of Third Army, completed plans to renew the attack on 7 September. This attack was to launch a drive through Metz to the Rhine River. The attacking 7th Armored, 5th Infantry, and 90th Infantry Divisions in XX Corps zone met increasing enemy resistance at the Moselle River line. THIS ITEM IS SOLD AS A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ONLY.
