Action around the Our River bridgehead in February 1945 by the 6th Armored Division was an effort to divert Germans from an attack by the US XII corps. Nevertheless, this action provided a basis for penetrating the West Wall. As a follow up to the Allied march across France, the pace was slowed as units neared Germany. The lessons of the combined Arms team in securing and exploiting a heavily defended bridgehead are clearly demonstrated.
