Special: Battle of Arracourt

Commanders,

This special commemorates one of the biggest tank battles on the Western Front, the Battle of Arracourt.

The battle took place 70 years ago, between the 18th and 29th of September 1944, near the town of Arracourt in Lorraine, France. After the landing in Normandy, the Allied forces advanced into the eastern regions of France near the German border, exploiting the fact that Germans had lost most of the advantages they had in 1940. Once the battle-tested troops of the U.S. Third Army reached Arracourt, they met with strong resistance from the German 5th Panzer Army, which tried to recapture Lunéville and push the Americans out from Dieulouard.

Under the cover of fog, the armoured forces clashed for over a week. Once the weather improved and the skies cleared, the US units could finally include air support in their attack and consequently defeated the German forces.

In order to help you get into the right mood this weekend, from Saturday 27 September at 07:10 until Tuesday 30 September at 07:00 CEST (UTC +2) you’ll be able to enjoy the following in-game bonuses:
