The headlong advance south towards France’s second largest city, Lyon, by Infantry Regiment Grossdeutschland continued with an assault gun from Lt. Von Werlhoff’s platoon leading the way. The first serious French resistance was met near Neuville-sur-Seine. There was a barricade in front of the village, which had a heavy machine gun, two light machine guns and a 47mm anti-tank gun. The assault spearheaded by the 6th Company, Infantry Regiment GD approached the barricade. Machine gun and rifle fire suddenly erupted from every house and near-by park. The assault gun immediately went into position and blasted the barricade.
Attacker: German (Kompanie 6, Infantry Regiment Grossdeutschland / StuG.Abt. 640)
