The Second Battle for Kesternich: 30 January - 1 February 1945

The Second Battle for Kesternich (Belgium) took place from 30 January 1945 to 1 February 1945. In the battle, the American 311th Infantry Regiment fought against the 272. Volksgrenadier-Division. This time the offensive was conducted under William H. Simpson's Ninth Army. Over the preceding weeks the volksgrenadiers had infiltrated back into and created strongpoints throughout the village. While this battle was no less a struggle than the earlier battle, the entrenched Germans inside the village could not stave off the unrelenting American attack and the village of Kesternich fell into American hands (Toy Soldiers of San Diego, 21st Century Toys (Jagdpanzer)).
