Landing forward of American lines near Chalmy, the 507th is sent to blow the bridge over the River Craelle. Making their way in haste to avoid roads and villages, they encountered patrols, Bayenne controlled by SS, and unexpected forces at the bridge itself. This commando style raid trapped a Jerry SS Panzer unit on the West side of the river while Monty punched a salient in the North.
