The Anglo-American battle for the Geilenkirchen Salient in November 1944 was infantry warfare at its worst. Like the days of World War I, the Allies had arrived at the Siegfried Line and were forced to attack the fortifications from the hell of the trenches. For the British it was one more battle on the way to Berlin but for the American 84th Division, it was their first step into the war. This story is told by the British, Americans and Germans who were there. Neither side was victorious.
