Patton’s Third Army Crushed Hitler’s Best Panzers
The Battle of Arracourt took place between US and German armoured forces near the town of Arracourt, Lorraine- France, between 18 and 29 September 1944 during the Lorraine Campaign of the second World War.
What made this tank battle unique was that a German tank force comprised mostly of Panther tanks was defeated by an American tank force equipped mostly with 75 millimeter Sherman tanks.
The Battle was the largest tank battle the US had conducted up to that point in history and saw the American forces brilliantly destroy two Panzer Brigades and additional units from two Panzer divisions.
