hard-charging Third Army finally crossed the Moselle River at Nancy and Dieuouard . Posing a serious threat to the German border, Hitler gathered his forces near a small town called Arracourt remnants of the 11th Panzer Division and 111th, 113th Panzer Brigades were ordered to halt Patton's advance at all cost. Known as the Battle of the Hellcats the largest tank-to-tank battle during WWII had begun. The sheer scale of this battle is often clouded by the Battle of the Bulge and the accounts of bravery on both sides compelled me to research the battle and create my first map for Company of Heroes. During WW2 the area was a mix of woodland, orchards and arable land, today most of the forest line seems to of disappeared and has been replaced by arable fields... The small town of Arracourt has grown in size but the layout and roads remain the same
