PMZ Campaign: Troyes 2

Report from General Obstfelder,
commanding First Army
The second battle for Troyes, dated February 25th 1945

The view from behind the German positions. Despite the units on the right having withdrawn to more defensive positions, German units still hold the central ridge and the riverline. The Americans have been driven back at all points.

Despite having fewer Panthers available due to their tranfer to face the British, the combination of the river and accurate fire from Jagd Panthers prevented the Americans making any progress.
