Historical Background:
On the 5th of July, the 315th Inf Rgt had took position on the north flank of Montgardon (Hill 84), still defended by a battalion of the 353.ID and a SS battalion of the Das Reich Panzer Division just arrived in this area. On the 6th of July, General Wyche commander of the 79th US Inf Division launched his three regiments in the assault of Hill 84. The 313th IR was delayed by minefields and barbed wire on the west flank. The 315th IR succeeded to capture the top of the hill and the 314th IR secured the east flank. In the evening, from the top of Montgardon, the US soldiers had a good sight of la Haye-du-Puits, the next objective of the VIIIth Army Corps.
