The American XXth Corps’ advance through central France brought it to the banks of the Moselle River in early September, and the 5th Infantry Division’s 11th Infantry Regiment forced a crossing of the river in the rain at Dornot on September 8. In the early hours of 10 September, Major W.M. Haughey’s 1st Battalion of the 10th Infantry Regiment crossed the river by boat. Once ashore, they overran a small German outpost on Hill 386 and were in the process of deploying a defensive line when they were hit suddenly by armor and infantry of SS Panzergrenadier-Division 17 from the nearby town of Arry.
