Hi all! Does anyone have any long term interest in or specific details or associations on this? (Place for details on "Operation Clipper - Geilenkirchen and the SRY - November 1944") Part of the thread at Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry (SRY) in North West Europe (Place for specific questions at the mo. ) In their first battle of WW2 (after coming over to Europe from the US) the 84th Division seems to have suffered: "2,000 battle casualties, including 169 killed and 752 (!!) missing. Nonbattle losses, primarily from trench foot, raised the total by another 500" ...out of a total of 4,100 men. The according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/84th_Division_(United_States) "after a short rest, the division returned to the fight taking Wurm, Mullendorf, 18th December before moving to Belgium to help stem the German winter offensive. 1) 752 seems a lot to have "just gone missing", 2) after battle casualties quoted as approx 50% it seems a bit extreme to have had "a short rest" before returning to stem the German winter offensive (Battle of the Bulge presumably). Note: There doesn't seem to be much being spelt out here. Though: The Siegfried Line Campaign: Chapter 23 Seems to have overall a good account, and the fact that the 84th's inexperience of combat (this was effectively their "first" fight") might have been involved. Many thanks! Geilenkirchen by Ramiles posted Mar 17, 2015 at 6:14 PM [sharedmedia=gallery:images:28081] Rm.
