Battle of Hatten-Rittershoffen: Key operational losses

(1 of 4)

 

The above document from the 14th Armored Division NARA records vehicle losses during the battle for Hatten-Rittershoffen.

German armored vehicles losses were well documented by the United States 14th Armored Division. These were substantial, at close to 60 vehicles. Infantry losses were harder to determine. That said, by the middle of the battle on 14 January, six Panzergrenadier battalions did not appear capable of offensive operations. The men from the 20th Fallschirmjager Regiment were utilised from this point onwards for offensive operations during the battle for Hatten-Rittershoffen.
