Outnumbered, but not outwitted, the 4th Armored Division – lead by John S. Wood – exploited key tactical situations with high quality tank crews to stand their ground in the wake of the German forces' objectives of recapturing Lunéville. In all, the Battle of Arracourt was the largest tank clash for U.S. forces until the Battle of the Bulge.
In observance of Creighton Abrams' birthday – whom participated in the Battle of Arracourt – we’re excited to announce a special “Kill the Mod” event themed around the battle.
