In Übach, GIs worked in concert with tanks of the 743rd Tank Battalion, which blew open the doors of boarded-up houses, allowing infantry to enter and clear out anyone remaining. House-to-house fighting went on all night, with lines never more than a building apart, and frequently resulted in foes separated by only a ceiling or wall. German counterattacks on the morning of 4 October, employing similar tactics as the Americans and supported by artillery, recaptured several buildings while bypassing other American positions, including the L Company headquarters. The order was given to push the Germans back.
