The Ottré massacre

On january 10th 1945, two squads of Comapany F, 331th regiment of the 83rd Infantry Division, attacked a German strongpoint, just outside the hamlet Ottré. The two squads were ambushed and pinned down on the ground. Many soldiers were killed instantly. At about 23.00 hrs, at least one German came down the slope and started to kill the wounded US soldiers.
At least one man, Harry E. Shoemaker, survived the massacre.

Since Mai 2009 I have been working on this story.
With the team I did a tremendous amount of work. Searching the internet, contacting NARA, fieldresearch……etc, etc, etc.
In August 2010 I published the second version of this horrible, unknown story.
But in Mai 2011 we found new information, forcing us to delete the story from the web.
And then all went quiet from our side. But I never stopped researching and went on.

UPDATE 10  January 2022:
The story has been published HERE!
