The giant pillbox poured a deadly rain of machinegun fire into the Americans as they inched forward. It was supported by mortars from the forest across the Moselle and by artillery fire from Driant's sister fortresses. At the closest point the Americans were a scant 75 yards from the main fort. But the Germans still were able to supply their garrison by trucks and wagons which slipped along a wind- Ing dirt road through the forest at Driant's rear. The road was under almost continuous shelll'ire but American observers could see the Germans moving even field kitchens up to their besieged positions. On te southeast flank of their position the Germans held a line from the giant pillbox about '!00 yards to the right, ending at the Moselle. Along this line the Germans were dug in with muchinegun und mortal- positions. Our officers estimated the Germans still held at least BO machine- gun positions in the fortress area, plus 10 larger concrete pillboxes, mortar and artillery emplacements, and the principal fort.
