005905-The Operations of Company G, 385th Infantry (76th Infantry Division) In the Attack against Pillboxes of the Siegfried Line near Minden, Germany, 19-22 February 1945 (Rhineland Campaign) 20 Pages 1950 This monograph covers the operations of Company G, 385th Infantry, 76th Infantry Division during the offensive against the Siegfried Line in the vicinity of Minden, Germany, 19 - 22 February 1945. The Siegfried Line was a belt of pillboxes that protected the western border of Germany. The pillboxes were so located to compliment natural obstacles and were also located in depth. Mine fields and tank traps protected areas that were not covered by fire from the pillboxes or artillery concentrations. The Siegfried Line was constructed so that its defenders could contain an attacking force until a successful counterattack could be launched. The portion of the Siegfried Line along the Sauer River was to be the real obstacle to the men of Patton's Third Army as they began their attack on 29 January to strike into the heart of Germany. VIII Corps spearheaded this offensive. On 6 February 1945, this offensive gained momentum as XII Corps joined VIII Corps in attacking east. THIS ITEM IS SOLD AS A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ONLY.
