After both sides occupying high ground over a ruined town,
German reinforcements engaged American Paratroopers in fields.
The Germans inflicted light casualties in hit and run raids but then failed to press home the element of surprise or to use a nearby platoon gone to ground in a wood to overwhelm the paratroopers.
Then those Eagles accurately reduced the German forces by 66%, pinning them down. Quickly the Eagles mopped up the stragglers. The skirmish ended with the Screaming Eagles happier than Das Reich.
