For three days, the "Railsplitters" of 'K' Company were joined in an attack by the men of the armor British Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry. For three days the weather worsened. The rain was so heavy, the mens' foxholes filled up with water, making sleep nearly impossible. During this stretch, the combined assault of American and British arms were repulsed by the defenders. However, the pressure of a constant attack not only took its toll on the attackers; exhausted and battered German troops finally pulled back behind the Würm River to regroup. Despite the retrograde movement of the enemy, the Siegfried Line was far from compromised. 'K' Company was ordered forward, assured of help from tanks from the British 79th Armored Division, and additional support from their own unit in the form of 'I' Company, 333rd Infantry battalion, which had found a crossing further north.
