Nilkheim Railroad Bridge
After the Engineers reinforced the bridge for vehicle to cross, CCB moved three Tank Companies and two Armored Infantry Companies by 1600 hours on the other site of the Main River to establish a bridgehead. The US troops held two high grounds as key positions - the Bischberg and the Erbig. At 1730 hours, the US troops in the bridgehead began to attack Aschaffenburg. But orders were received to stop the attack and set up a perimeter defense.
