Zerf Stranglehold is a 2019 historical module published by Critical Hit that details the actions of the U.S. 5th Ranger Battalion in February 1945 after crossing the Saar River to scale the hill known as the Hocker Berg and set up a roadblock on the road between the villages of Irsch and Zerf, which would interfere with German logistics. However, the Rangers were not relieved after two days, as planned, and had to hold out against German counterattacks for more than a week. --- Desperation Morale
