September 22nd 1944. Day 6. Operation Market Garden. South of Grave on the Eindhoven-Nijmegen road.
At 9am a joint attack by Kamfgruppe Walther in the East and Kampfgruppe Huber in the West succeeds in cutting the allied corridor south of Nijmegen. Striking between the towns of Veghel and Uden their aim is to permanently sever XXX Corps supply route by capturing Veghel and destroying the bridges over the Zuid Wilhelms Vaart canal.
Making use of heavy fog to take the enemy by surprise the Germanâ€™s initial progress is good and by early afternoon they are able to bring down fire upon the canal bridges. The elements of the 101st airborne division holding the town are hard pressed until the timely arrival of reinforcements and tanks from XXX Corp helps turn the tide. A counter attack combined with massed artillery fire breaks up the German assault and Kampfgruppe Huber is destroyed as an effective fighting force. Heavy fighting continues into the night as German pressure is maintained but by the end of the day Veghel remains firmly in allied hands.
Forced to pull back, Kampfgruppe Walther holds it position covering the road and awaits reinforcements due in the morning. It is blocking the main road by fire preventing any allied traffic from moving and causing serious delays to the allied advance. Allied vehilces are backed up for miles to the south and no supplies are making it through to the advanced elements of XXX Corp moving towards Arnhem. Aware of the potential consequences of further delays allied forces are preparing to make concerted effort to break the blockade in the morning and resume the movement of supplies North.
