Battle of Hurtgen Forest ~ WW II

September 19, 1944 through February 10, 1945
144 Days

33,000 casualties
Avg Casualty Rate was 229/day


The Huertgen Forest is a strategically insignificant corridor of barely 50 square miles, east of the Belgian-German border. The Allied commanders wanted to clear out the forest of German’s. But the German’s were well dug in and the thick forest gave them a strategic advantage over the advancing troops. The US Official History estimated that 120,000 troops, plus replacements, were committed to Hurtgen. By the end there had been 24,000 battle casualties plus 9,000 non-battle. Two divisions, the U.S. 4th Infantry Division and the U.S. 9th Infantry Division, were so badly mauled that they were withdrawn from the line to recuperate.
