Agent mans near the village of Linden, fi miles northeast of Aachen. On the Dutch front, the flet-mans were fighting briskly against an expanding Seeon.l Army spearhead beyond N'i.imegen Into Iho Rhine triangle, throwing in counterattacks westward toward Ni.imegen from the Relchswald forest. The counter-thrusts by bands of "fin men and a few tanks were too light to present a major threat to Xijmegen. but they increased Lieutenant-General Hir Miles C. Demp- scy's difficulty in building up his spearhead driven into a corner of tile Riechswald' forest. A limited force of Germans crossed the Xeder Rhine near Arnhem.

Richards reported that American Third Army infantrymen, tanks, and tank-destroyers were swarming through the forest of Parroy, fi miles northeast of I^unevllle and almost due east of Nancy, In close pursuit of strong German aruored detachments falling back toward high ground between the Vcxousc river and the Rhiue-AIarne canal. The Americans advanced 1 to S miles, fighting every step of the way against Xazl rear guards who tried repeatedly to ambush the Third Army columns In the dense, hilly forests. Richards' dispatch indicated the American breakthrough was only on :i- local scale and that the X-axis were expected to make a strong stand on the heights beyond the Vesouxe.
