Battle of Aachen and Hurtgen Forest

The Battle of Aachen was the first city on German soil to be captured by the Allies. The battle ended with a German surrender, but their tenacious defence significantly disrupted Allied plans for the advance into Germany. The Battle of Hürtgen Forest was the longest battle on German ground during World War II and is the longest single battle the U.S. Army has ever fought.
