Strategic Campaigns

The Battle of Hürtgen Forest (German: Schlacht im Hürtgenwald) is the name given to the series of fierce battles fought between U.S. and German forces during World War II in the Hürtgen Forest, which became the longest battle on German ground during World War II, and the longest single battle the U.S. Army has ever fought in its history.[4] The battles took place between September 14, 1944, and February 10, 1945, over barely 50 mi² (129 km²), east of the Belgian–German border.
