The CCB of the 6th Armored Division seized the Nied bridge and crossed that river on November 11th. Wary of German panzers to the north, a small cavalry force was sent to form a blocking position between Berlize and Bazoncourt to protect the flank of the CCB. Capt. James Bridges set up positions six hundred yards south of Berlize at midnight. As morning dawned they saw a lot of movement in the town, but couldn't tell if it was friend or foe. The answer came soon as German tanks and assault guns poured out of Berlize and came straight at them.
