Hill 192 - the Battle for St. Lo
or to see your play details)
Unlike the defender of most Wn, the defenders at Hill 192 turned out to be the 9th Parachute Regiment, 3rd Parachute Regiment -- very bad news for the American doughboys tasked to capture it ... facing a determined enemy, armed to the teeth with automatic weapons. Located about five miles (eight kilometers) north-east of St Lô, this rise in the ground would hardly be classed a hill on most maps. But in a countryside where a significant high point is twenty or thirty meters (sixty-five to one hundred feet) above the surrounding countryside, Hill 192, named for its height in meters, was a strategic point that would cost a lot in American lives. From here, the Germans had an uninterrupted view north over the 2nd Division's lines, but also west overlooking all the approach paths that would have to be used by the 29th Division's attack to capture the town. Following a savage fight on the 11th of July, the 2nd Infantry Division finally secured this high ground allowing the capture of St Lô five days later. Here you will be shown the American and German front line positions at the start of the battle, with the Germans everywhere looking down on the US soldiers.
