    The Alte Zweifaller Straße served during the fighting as a fortified supply road, over which also tracked vehicles could be introduced. In the Hang and further in the area Katzenhardt are still many positions, which were used by the 39th Regiment of the 9th US Infantry Division and then by the 109th Regiment of the 28th US Infantry Division. The attack started from here on 2 November 1944 towards Hürtgen was stopped a little later by the Germans in the area of ​​the mine field "Wild sow". The 109th Regiment was replaced by the 12th Regiment of the 4th US Infantry Division due to the high losses before the end of the All Souls Battle. In this unit was the later world famous author Jerome D. Salinger used as a member of the Counter Intelligence Corps.
