Tanks of the 2. Panzer SS (2nd SS Armoured Division) of the 6. SS-Panzerarmee drove on Christmas Eve to Grandmenil where they were stopped by a tank blockade. The German tanks succeeded to break through the blockade and the American tanks had to pull back. Next day Grandmenil was captured by the Americans again. The Panther tank we saw in this village was left behind because of shortage of fuel.
On this day we did a part of the fourth route. We started in Grandmenil with a German Panther tank.
