Historical Background:
Hurtgen Forest was a dangerous battle for the Allies. Fighting in the forest trying to destory the dreaded Germans. The battle started on November 2 for the 28th Division. Germans were all over the place shooting with machine guns.

There were many frozen rivers, pillboxes, and bad terrain and weather. The 28th Division slipped into the town of Schmidt early in the battle. German tanks counter-attacked the 28th Division. The Allies only had rocket launchers that did not effect the Panther Tanks.

The US Division fell back into Kommerscheidt. Later that town was captured by the Germans too. The 28th Division was badly hurt in the battle and retreated. They fought hard and tried to win but were badly hurt.
