Operation 11th Panzer Division

This was a US tactical deception undertaking to hold Generalleutnant Wend von Wietersheim’s 11th Panzerdivision of General Erich Brandenberger’s 7th Army in the area to the south of Trier in western Germany as the US forces began an offensive undertaking in an area somewhat farther to the north (1/15 February 1945).
