Tanks Battles in The Lorraine, September 1944 - January 1945
Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. ~ General George S Patton Jr.
Hello, and welcome to Patton's Third Army! The road to victory lies straight through the Lorraine, a stretch of land perfectly suited to mobile tank warfare. The American army and its allies have been steamrolling through France and the Low Countries. The end of the war seems so near with the Germans barely able to put up a fight. But the Allied advance has slowed as supplies and fuel become scarce.
It's September 1944 and the Allies have stormed across France all along the front lines from Belgium to the French region of the Lorraine.
Patton's unstoppable Third Army is poised to strike into Germany itself, with the hard-charging 4th Armored Division in the lead. Nothing, it seemed, stood in the division's way as it pressed on.
However, the Germans still had fight in them. Four of Hitler's brand new Panzer Brigades, specifcally crafted from lessons learned on the Soviet front, were diverted to meet the Americans in the Lorraine. The brigades were given all of Germany's latest weapons from Panther tanks to assault rifles and more. The heavily armed units were ready to counterattack!
The two forces clashed east of the city of Nancy at a quiet farming village called Arracourt. The battlefield was ideal for a tank battle. The rolling fields and small villages played host to over 450 American and German tanks as they fought one of the largest battles of World War II.
