Despite the support of P-38 fighter planes and a company of M-10 tankdestroyers on Wednesday October 4, CCA does succeed in reaching Overloon. They loose much in personnel and equipment. The goal of attack for CCR is changed: it becomes the â€˜bootshaped forrest', a forestal area in the form of a boot to the North of Overloon (incidentally, the British saw a dogshape in it). Task Force Fullen approaches from the North and Task Force Wemple from the Northeast. The German opposition is heavy, thanks to the well-camouflaged positions of their artillery. In the end a large number of Sherman tanks along the edge of the forest are destroyed or badly damaged by, amongst other things, a battery 88 mm guns, stationed at Castle The Hattert in Vierlingsbeek.
