Almost nothing remains of Hattert Castle. Between late September and mid-October 1944, an unprecedented tank battle takes place near it. First, an American armoured division engages the Germans. The weather is atrocious. Rain turns the battlefield into a quagmire, in which large tanks can poorly manoeuvre. The Americans suffer heavy losses. A British armoured infantry division relieves them. During the battle, the castle is totally destroyed.
