0000 2nd day.
Bridge built at Untereisenbach. (Done 2140 1st day.)
77. Inf. Regt. dug in at Hosingen.
39. Fus. Regt. dug in at Consthum.
78. Inf. Regt. driving on Drauffelt. 2. Komp. attacking at Drauffelt, but rest of regt. strung out for 5 km. b/t Drauffelt and Bockholz-les Hosin. Exhausted and moving slow. Enemy armor and AAA at Drauffelt.
II. Abt. 304. Pz. Gren. Regt. driving on Clervaux. Few casualties but exhausted and moving slow. 5. and 7. Kompanies across the bridge, but Ami armor spotted.
Pz. Div. Lehr beginning to move. KG Fallois across the bridge and headed towards Bastogne (Hopefully.). The AI has a torturous route picked out for Fallois but I'll go with it for now.
KGs 901 and 902 also moving out for Bastogne. I should have staged them close to the bridge and didn't. Paying too much attention to battles forward.
German arty very effective this time. I've been using it at the Korps level for stubborn Ami units.
Here's a list of American units eliminated so far:
Co. K, 110th Inf. Regt. Surrendered at Hosingen.
2nd plt., Co. B., 630th TD Bn. Destroyed at Wahlhausen.
3rd Bn. HQ, 110th Inf. Regt. Surrendered at Holtzum.
Co. L, 110th Inf. Regt. Surrendered at Holtzum.
Co. B, 103rd Combat Eng. Bn. Destroyed at Marnach.
Unknown AT plt. Destroyed at Marnach.
Co. B, 110th Inf. Regt. Destroyed in the tree line just south of Marnach.
Mortar plt., 1st Bn., 110th Inf. Regt. Destroyed in the tree line just south of Marnach.
Not a terrible 1st day.
