The 133rd Infantry Regiment was to spearhead an effort to secure the town of Sant' Angelo d'Alife. Their first objective was to reach the two junctions in the foothills below the village. The 100th Battalion was to secure the upper road junction while the 1st Battalion followed to take the lower road junction. Strong opposition was expected and Colonel Ray Fountain had warned his battalion commanders that if their men were caught out in the open at daylight the German response would be swift and deadly.


At 1800 the Americans moved out with the Nisei initially making excellent progress. Upon reaching the hills around midnight things turned sour. Heavy and accurate fire stopped their advance cold and the 1st Battalion was diverted to their aid with 3rd Battalion ordered to take upper junction. It was to no avail as the Germans were too strong to be driven from their positions.
