This is very great data!!!
I was wrong in my statement that the StuG-Abt. of the 346. Inf.Div. attacked the 1st Battalion/ 415th US Inf.Rgt. (104th US Inf.Div.).
Also, with the dates you mentioned, it was impossible as well that it was this unit, as my hometown was liberated at Monday, 30 October 1944.
It was the 857. Gren.Rgt. of the 346. Inf.Div. who defended the Mark-river, with the help of the 244. H-StuG.Brig. (Ritm. Fritz Jaschke?).
The commander of the 3. Batterie, Oberleutnant Heinrich Specht got wounded and died later in a hospital in Utrecht. The Brigade lost several StuG's during the counterattack.
The 346. Infanterie-Division was ordered to destroy the catholic church in my hometown, but the divisional commander, Generalleutnant Steinmüller refused to follow this order "im Hinblick auf der kulturhistorischen Wert".
