Relax soldier, Paris has fallen. You deserve a rest!
Elements of 101st Airborne Division were tasked with securing and holding a bridge at all costs. German mechanized infantry mobilized to oust US forces currently holding the bridge. The casualties were high on both sides with the US losing three units; a veteran 1919 crew, an air force observer, and one paratrooper squad. The German forces lost two units including their officer and a squad of Volkssturm. As the German forces envelopped the bridge they were thinned out by the US forces and ultimately forced a retreat, holding onto the bridge.
