Introduction

After a much-appreciated lull in the fighting recharged them, the 29'ers were ready to go. Assistant division commander Norman "Dutch" Cota had taught them new tactics that now would be put to the test, while his boss Charles H. Gerhardt allegedly set up a division-sponsored whorehouse for his men. All that remained was for the sun to rise and the air cover to arrive. Gerhardt was sure that success was within the 29th's grasp. Someone neglected to inform the Germans. Before the 29'ers could go, the Germans launched Stormtroop Operation Kersting at them.

Conclusion

Many Americans felt their positions had been scouted by a German medic under a flag of truce because the fallschirmjägers were able to infiltrate the American lines before their presence was detected. The Germans used the night, the freedom from Allied aerial disruption, and possibly medical skullduggery to great advantage in this spoiling attack. Lieutenant Werner Kersting's plan so disrupted the Americans that they were five and a half hours late in launching their own attack.
