Einsatz der Führer Grenadier Brigade - The Matrix Games version of West Front
[Version 3.0, 05-08-2005] After the succesful fighting over Diekirch and Ettelbrück, the 1st and 2nd Battalion of the 915th Reg. of the 352. Volksgrenadier Division set out to move towards Pratz along the N21. That same morning American 80th Infantry Division, was ordered to move north towards Ettelbrück and Heiderscheid, while 26th Infantry Division was supposed to move from the south towards Grosbous and Eschdorf and from the west towards Grevils-Bresil. Also arriving this morning was the 7th Army reserve; The Führer Grenadier Brigade ordered the fill the widening gap between the 352. VGD at Ettelbrück and Mertzig and the 5th FallschirmJäger Division at Martelange. In the clash that followed, the unfortunate 915th Reg. found itself trapped at Grosbous and Mertzig while the FGB was struggeling to fend off the American attack. Eventually the remnants of the 915th had to flee back to the German lines. Lacking sufficient numbers of artillery and Panzergrenadiers the FGB fought desperately to defend Eschdorf and the bridge over the Sûre river at Heiderscheidergrund. Help arrived on the 23rd of december with the arrival of Alois Webers 79th Volksgrenadier Division taking position in the hills south of the Sûre from Bourscheid to Heiderscheidergrund.
