The advance had been a constant thing. The 3
months since the Normandy Landings have
been a steady diet of marching and fighting.
Some days the enemy fell back at break neck
speed, while on others he stood and fought with
almost reckless abandon. As the borders of
Germany proper approached, days like the later
have been the more common of the two. The
Ruhr Valley, Germanyís production hub, lay just
ahead, with only a 50 square mile forest and
some rivers in the way.
The frontline has begun to stabilize
just short of the little Hϋrtgen Forest and the
Germanís Siegfried Line. While the beans and
bullets catch-up, and the Brass does whatever
the Brass is going to do up north, itís back to
scouting, patrolling, and preparing.
Itís just a little
forest, and everyone likes walks in the woods,
