The paratroopers of the 325th Glider Infantry Regiment were eating breakfast inside the warm houses of the village of Fraiture when a group of SS panzergrenadiers attacked. The surprised paratroopers did not have time to finish breakfast. The SS panzergrendiers quickly closed in on the paratroopers, taking advantage of unoccupied foxholes.
