World War II SitesLiberation Route Europe, Hattert, Netherlands

in World War II Sites

Almost nothing is left of Hattert Castle. An unprecedented tank battle takes place in its vicinity between the end of September and mid-October 1944. First, an American armored division takes on the Germans. The weather conditions are harsh. Rain turns the battlefield into a large mud pool in which tanks can maneuver badly. The Americans suffer heavy losses. They are relieved by a British armored and infantry division. The castle is completely destroyed during the battle.
