As the 133rd Infantry Regiment prepared to pass through the 168th Infantry Regiment, they received a change in orders: proceed immediately to the north and establish a bridgehead over Volturno River. It took some time to halt the troops, then more time as the leadership hatched a complicated plan to trap the enemy south of the river. The 3rd and 100th Battalions were to attack from the southeast while the 1st Battalion swung wide and circled back from the north. Once the details were all covered throughly, the troops set out once again, but daylight was waning.


The 1st Battalion became lost and did not establish their bridgehead until midnight. That made them the first to reach their objective. soon the 3rd Battalion arrived but it would be after dawn before the Nisei managed to fight their way there. This was long after the Germans had retreated north of the river and blown the bridge.
