Berichttitel:  Fall Braun

Na Normandie was het voor de geallieerden het belangrijkste een zee haven in handen te krijgen en voor de duitsers het belangrijkste deze te onthouden.
Nadat Antwerpen voor de duitsers als verloren beschouwd werd,bleven ze zware terugtrekkende gevechten leveren om tijd te winnen om zoveel mogelijk gebied te behouden en tijd te winnen,totdat ze een enorme tegenaanval zouden kunnen doen.
De bedoeling was v/u N.W.-Brabant en vanuit de Ardennen gelijktijdig een snelle doorstoot naar Antwerpen te maken en het noordelijk geallieerde front in een soort tangbeweging in te sluiten.
Om dit voor elkaar te krijgen moest eerst de situatie gestabiliseerd worden,want Antwerpenstad was al in geallieerden handen gevallen.
het eerste deel bestond uit:Het zwaartepunt van de westelijke operatie zou bij de engte van Woensdrecht liggen,met tot doel Antwerpenhaven zo lang mogelijk onbruikbaar te houden voor de geallieerden.
Tegelijkertijd moest alles gedaan worden voor de terugname van het 15eLeger.
Wie heeft info over dit plan "Fall Braun"?

The Battle of the Capelsche Veer (Fall Braun)
Sprang-Capelle, Netherlands
Location:

A small strip of land along the banks of the river Maas, between Sprang Capelle and Dussen.

History:

At the end of 1944, thing didn’t look to good for the Germans. Hitler ordered the preparation for a large offensive in the west. The main objective of this offensive was to capture the port of Antwerp and to cut the Allied force in two parts. The main German advance route was through the Belgium Ardennes. This operation was called "Unternehmen Wacht am Rhein". Later this became know as the Battle of the Bulge. Look at this map to get a complet view.

What is now known to may people, that there was a operation that should support the main German attack through the Belgium Ardennes. This support operation was know as "Fall Braun". Therefore the Germans gathered a large force, north of the river Maas. When the operation started, the German troops advanced through the south of the Netherlands to Antwerp. There was one small problem for the Germans. The river Maas acted as a natural barrier between the Germans in the North and Allied troops in the south. The Germans had three small bridgeheads, south of the river Maas. One of the bridgehead was near a place called "Capelsche Veer". Named after a small ferry, that crossed the river Maas near that point. The bridgehead was heavily defended and had to face a large Allied force in the south of the Netherlands. The bridgehead was mainly occupied by German paratroopers.

At the end of 1944, the preparations of Fall Braun went on and on. But when the Battle of the Bulge started, Hitler decided that the forces of Fall Braun had to go to the area of the Bulge for support. At the end there were very little amount of German forces left in the building up area of Fall Braun.

Een slecht verhaal zeg. Gelukkig is deze threat al heel oud en heeft de plaatser ervan waarschijnlijk inmiddels betere informatie over Fall Braun en the battle for Kapelsche veer (met een K i.p.v. een C) kunnen vinden.

Zie ook eens Kapelscheveer.come2me.nl of vogw.nl
