5th ID-Battle of Angers

Very nice tag !

On July 29, 1944, 10th Infantry Regiment started progressing to capture Hill 183, where a hard battle occured during two days.

The 10th Regiment fought against the 3. Fallschirmjäger Division. The capture of the Hill 183 was costly for the regiment, which suffered 78 killed including one officer, 346 wounded including 23 officers and 35 missing.
