The Hermann Göring Paratroop Panzer Division sent a "Western battle group" along this road to attack them. But American paratroops had landed in the small hours, cutting German communications and capturing the hill and "Y" junction visible in the distance. The blocked the battle group on this road, destroying some Tigers. One Tiger can be seen to the right of this photo; it's not clear whether it was knocked out or broke down here. A close examination shows a second Tiger that is known from other photos.
