    My name is Dave and i like to research the details of battles of world war 2. I found this forum at the start of research about Hoch Elten. I hope my other researches before my membership can help other members.

    Welcome aboard Dave070. This website can be amazing, though don't expect magic and speed at times.

    I assume Hochelten is the German village near the Dutch border and the River Rhine. There are a number of threads on the Allied crossing of the Rhine, most use the Hoch Elten spelling and only three Hochelten. Use the search function and you will see them. One particular member, Stolpi, appears in one if not more threads.

    Yeah i mean that small village. I visited the place yesterday and spoke a german old man. He told me his brother fought there and it was a living hell during 3 day shelling. Gladly the boy survived it on the age of 14/15.
