Historical Background:
The attack on Champs and Hemroulle began with camouflaged German infantry from the 77th Grenadier infiltrating the woods on the right flank. The main infantry attack then commenced with the advance of the 1st Company of the 77th Grenadier Regiment attacking the town of Champs, but soon had to call up the 2nd Company when they met stiff resistance.
The main attack then came from 18 German panzers which attacked the left and quickly brushed aside the A Company of the 327th Glider Infantry and 4 tank destroyers. Their attack then split and moved against Rolle Chateau and Hemroulle. The panzers moving on Rolle Chateau eliminated two tank destroyers that were fleeing from Champs, but in so doing exposed themselves to hidden tank destroyers in the woods and were decimated. The commander of the force moving on Hemroulle mistook it for Bastogne and radioed his HQ that he had reached the objective. The combined fire however from a howitzer battery, two Shermans and bazookas quickly eliminated the panzers, ending the attack.
