The Battle of Daun was a military engagement that took place on March 3, 1945, on the Western Front of World War II. It involved a German attack on a French-held town in central Germany, which failed, giving the French a comeback after a string of defeats by the Wehrmacht in the southern parts of the corridor.

Battle Edit

The Ulmen Regiment of the German Army attacked the French-held town of Daun, hoping to put up a last-ditch defense of the Fatherland. The French soldiers were experienced from past victories and defeats, and faced nothing more than a rag-tag group of German male and female youths, and many of the Germans were killed in action during the failed attack.
