The attack started moving forward at 0900 on the 29th and both canbat groups
r::.n into ini tib..l aeavy resistance just beyond the line of departure and both
groJ.l)S s',Ji'i'erea ~lea.vy casualties among their infantrymen. Lieutenant RUdnick
a.c1VWlCed with the as,:,ault wave of l-..is group, and continued to adjust fire on
tJr6et~ 0: opportunity and at suspected OP's for enem;y mortars.
colonel Cockefair's group on the right advanced on a small distance from
the line of departure and was pinned down by enetq 8DI&l.l arms, mortar and
artillery fire. The left platoon of this group was forced to withdraw and
reorganize. Toe group then started to advance again and progresbed satisfac
torily to the creek shown on attached overlays where it was held up by mortar
and artillery fire. Lieutenant Fernow of the 67th, with his FO sergeant,
sergeant Vernon J. Stromberg, 36024095, Headquarters Battery, went forward
..,ith the asault wave of this group and Lieutenants Van Fleet and I,&.Dgsdorf
remained at the C? of the group commaDier.
The obervers from the 67th who accompanied both groups forward continued
to advance I'lith them all ci<q and were continually subjeoted to enem;y fire of
all Vpes. The many hedge rows hampered their field of observation but.o.,they
were able to adjU5t fire on several points of resistance aDd suspected ene~
observation posts. However, ma.uy of the missioD3 in support of the attack
were fired btl air observers of the battalion.
The air section of the 67th on this

On the ~9th due to limited visibility on the ground the air seOibion flew

,It.. total of 17 hours, 20 minutes while the air observers adjusted.fire on all

! types of targets, including en8ll\Y infantry, buildings, ta.iJts, artii.lery batteries

and mortars. The plc..ne flown by Lieutenant Knisley wa.s in the air ten hours

liIld twenty minutes 'on this d&te and Lieutemmt FordJs:-p18ne_~was in; the air

fired the majority of the air missions. Two missions ;',ere flown b 2nd Lieut
enant LeROY G. Hart, Jr., o-ll71579, Headquarters Bttttery, in Lieutenant FOrdlS
plane ilm on the remai.'1der of Lieutenant Ford' 5 flights captain McKee flew as
observer. Due to the li"!lited ground observa.t1on they were--a valuable asset to
the artillery support received by our infantry on this operation.

2tctemnt t;;..;cen from Ca.ptain ~tey;art C. Ueyer, c~er Battery A, concerning the
&tta.ck L t G<;..vrcy bridgehead:
Battery A was advance guard batter,y on the 5Oth~. I was with Lt.
Dc.niels of the 26th Infantry I Commsmer of Task FOrce Z. The batter,y went
into .:i0S.l. tion just north of st. !)enis Ie Gast abwt 1500.

COl..

The bridge across the La Siemle River at Gavrq had been destroyed.
Lt. COl.. Daniels planned to attempt a crossing with F CCDpalI" which was his left
flank comp~ after suitable artillery preparation. This crossing was made by
one plG.toon who met considerable machine gun fire and was v1rt~ cut off. This
fire was neutralized and they were ~.'i.thdrawn and rejoined their cCllllp8.JV'. at about
l~OO.
At this time Lt. col. Daniels decided. to attempt no further crossing cluring
dsylight hours.
The artillery preparation prior to this unsuccessful attack was fired
by three batteries of the 54th Armel FA Battalion of Task FOrce X, one batter,y of
the ~91st Amcl FA Battalion, am Batter,y A. Although all three units were on

different routes sup;.-orting different task forces their tire was succea&fu.l.q
massed and adjusted by captain Meyer and Lieutenant Van Fleet.
])Uring the remaining hours of daylight arUller,y was concentrated on
enemy strongpoints, machine gun nests, am possible 8ll8II1' OPs. part or tl:d.s tire
wa.s adjusted tu the infantry caapan1es in the line.
At 2350 an artiller,y preparation l:cr the battalion was laid clown on the
left flank and center of Task FOrce Z's objective. Th1a preparation . . . uttecl
