Modern Map of the Southern Hürtgen Forest

The U. S. Ninth Infantry Division had bloody fights at Germeter and Vossenack in October 1944.  South of Germeter off Highway 399 is the German Military Cemetery (Ehr. Fdhf.), where Field Marshall Walter Model is buried.  Elements of the U. S. Twenty-Eighth Infantry Division attacked from the south side of Vossenack to the Mestrenger Mühle and up the other side to Kommerscheidt in November 1944.  Here they ran into the German 116th Panzer Division.
