11th Armored Division, US Army, after action poster reporting battle events of March 1945

Object | Accession Number: 2012.227.1

After action report poster of the 11th Armored Division, US Army, for southwestern Germany from March 3 - 31, 1945. The top section depicts a map with three green arrows outlining the advance of the 11th Armored through southwestern Germany. The left arrow tracks northeastern movements from March 3 at Prum to March 9 at the Rhine River and Andernach. The center shows the southern push on March 10 from Bullay to the eastward shift ending in Worms on March 21. The right arrow tracks northeastern movement from Oppenheim on March 28 to the attack at Fulda on March 31. The Division continued south and was in Amstetten, Austria, when Germany surrendered on May 7, 1945. The Division landed in Normandy, France, on December 16, 1944, and took heavy losses in the Battle of the Bulge that month. In February 1945, the Division attacked the German defensive line near Belgium, and, in March, pressed into Germany. After the war, the 11th was placed on occupation duty until it was inactivated in August 1945.
