Saar Campaign - November 1944.

November 1944. As the Allies advance approaches the Westwall and the German historical borders, German resistance intensifies.

On 27 November 1944, elements of the US(1?) 80th ID (under General Mc Bride) enter into Saint Avold. The German troops were to withdraw(2?)? The previous night the SS XIII Corps left the city in order to establish a new line of resistance West of the Saar river (Sarre in French). The same day, US Colonel Lewis orders his 317th Regiment to pursue the retreating Germans in the direction of Farebersviller.

In order to regain contact with the enemy the regiment marches off on foot because of the mud which hinders the mobility of their trucks. At dusk, contact is established about 10 km NE of Saint Avold in the vicinity of Farébersviller. Colonel Lewis orders the regiment to deploy and sends his leading battalion, the 3rd, to attack in the direction of Farebersviller while the 1st and 2d Battalions move forward south and north, respectively, of that village.

The American stumble onto a German rearguard element comprising the 17. SS-Panzergrenadier-Division « Götz von Berlichingen » tactical reserve tasked to delay the American advance. For 7 days, fierce combat take place into and in the vicinity of Farébersviller.

On 29 November, during the afternoon, Companies A and C of the 1st Battalion cross the railroad south of Farebersviller and gain the wooded ridge that lies beyond. About 1600 seven(3?) German tanks and a company of their infantry slice in between the advance companies and the rest of the battalion…

 

1)      These are US troops I assume

2)      Unclear if you intend to say that the Germans “withdrew.” or they “intended to withdraw.”

3)      Don’t understand what you mean
