The Relief


On 26 March 1945 the boundaries between the Third and the Seventh US Army were changed, with Aschaffenburg assigned to the Seventh US Army. In the morning of 27 March 1945, the troops of CCB 4th US Armored Division were relieved by a Regimental Combat Team (RCT) of the 26th US Infantry Division. CCB assembled near Weisskirchen, to prepare for the assault to then north on 28 March 1945.
