Three additional Nazi assaults near Allied-held Overloon were beaten back, but the progress of British and American forces In the area was slowed by the fury of the enemy onslaughts. Reconnaissance reports meanwhile showed that one-third of Walcheren Island, the dikes of which were blasted by RAF armadas earlier in the week, now is under water. Armored Battle Rage Earlier dispatches from headquarters reported that the armored battle between Nazi and American forces north of Aachen in the L'bach-Her-bach sector raged unchecked while other Allied units extended their drive to oust the enemy from Holland by crossing the Dutch frontier north of Antwerp. The Americans, commanded by Lieut. Gen. Courtney H. Hodges punched their way eastward from I'bach, where the gap in the Siegfried defenses was smashed, and reached Beggendorf, a mile and one-half east. 4 Milin into Iti-iili Advanced Bpearheads of American armor battled four miles Inside Reich territory north of Aachen in assaults aimed at widening I lie area of break-through to permit major units of the Elrst Army lo debouch on the plain before Cologne.
