The latest encounter of the 508th saw yet another German army retreat towards Berlin.

In a classic operation the rifle MG teams were supported by light machine guns and .50c Anti Aircraft guns laying down a hail of gunfire. Combined with the artillery and aircraft with unparallel freedom of the sky, the Germans knew better then show themselves from their holes.

Reconnaissance jeeps rode deep behind enemy lines tearing a wedge through the lines for the Rifle/MG teams to follow.

At this point Sherman tanks were spotted joining the battle to the left. The battle was almost over and they only managed to get off one round before the enemy retreated from the battle field and the 508th had won another victory.

The road to Paris is clear and on to Berlin.
