Friedrich Lengfeld, was a German WW2 Officer in the Wehrmacht, who died in November 1944 during the Battle of Hürtgen Forest (“Hürtgenwald”), while trying to save the life of a U.S. soldier. Notably, he may also be the only German soldier whom received a monument from former U.S. soldiers to honor an act of bravery by the enemy. 👁‍🗨 His story is told by Hubert Gees, a soldier of his unit: “On November 12, 1944, when the Americans (12th US Infantry Regiment) had re-taken the forester’s house in the night just to lose it again in the forenoon, our company suffered a severe loss south of mine field “Wilde Sau”. In the early noon an obviously heavy wounded American G.I. in “No-Mans land” was crying for help. He was lying at the edge of the embankment on the eastern side of the road. My LT, Lengfeld sent me to our position covering the mine free zones to deliver the order not to shoot if an American Corpsmen would show up to tend the seriously injured. After several hours of heart wrenching cries and no U.S. rescue parties came, Lengfeld ordered our Corpsmen to put together a rescue squad. Lengfeld went on top of the rescue squad on our side of the road, which was secured with anti-tank mines, whose positions were relatively easy to locate. In the vicinity of the severely wounded American, when he was about to cross the side of the road, he was taken down by a mine. In a great hurry he was taken back to our command post to be given First Aid. Two holes in his back with the size of a coin suggested severe internal injuries. The same evening he died from his severe injuries on the main casualty station at Froitzheim.👁‍🗨 🔎 The memorial plaque on the next page reads: “No man hath greater love than he who layeth down his life for his enemy.”🔎 IN MEMORY OF LIEUTENANT FRIEDRICH LENGFELD: Here in Huertgen Forest on November 12, 1944, Lt. Lengfeld, a German officer, gave his life while trying to save the life of an American soldier lying severly wounded in the “Wilde Sau” minefield and appealing for medical aid.

ww2_glimpses's Media: IN MEMORY OF
LIEUTENANT FRIEDRICH LENGFELD.

Here in Huertgen Forest on November 12, 1944,

IN MEMORY OF LIEUTENANT FRIEDRICH LENGFELD. Here in Huertgen Forest on November 12, 1944, Lt. Lengfeld, a German officer, gave his life while trying to save the life of American soldier ----------------------------------------------------- On October 7, 1994 , member of the 22nd Infantry Regiment Society dedicated a monument to a German Soldier from the Second World War. The monument stands near the entrance to the military cemetery in Hürtgen, Germany, the final resting place for over 2900 German Soldiers. It honors Leutnant Friedrich Lengfeld, a Company Commander in the German Army, who lost his life trying to save a wounded American Soldier. It may possibly be the only monument erected anywhere, by former US Soldiers, to honor an act of bravery by a German Soldier, who at the time of the act, was an enemy at war with the United States. On November 12, 1944, Lt. Friedrich Lengfeld was commanding a beleaguered German rifle company. Like most units on both sides,he had suffered heavy casualties. Early that morning, a wounded American could be heard calling from the middle of a German minefield in a no man's land separating the combatants. "Help me" the man cried. His unit had withdrawn , however, and no U.S. troops were close enough to hear. Lengfeld ordered his men not to shoot if Americans came to rescue the man. But none came. The soldier's weakening voice was heard for hours. "Help me" he called, again and again. At about 10:30 that morning, Lengfeld could bear the cries no longer. He formed a rescue squad, complete with Red Cross vests and flags, and led his men toward the wounded American. He never made it. Approaching the soldier, he stepped on a land mine, and the exploding metal fragments tore deeply into his body. Eight hours later Lengfeld is dead. The fate of the American is unknown. Much of this story, is based on the eyewitness account of Hubert Gees, who served as Lengfeld's communication runner. #worldwar #worldwartwo #worldwar2 #ww2 #wwII #military #history #militaryhistory #german #american #private #GI #historybuff #casualty #fallen #historybuff #medic #landmine #step #bleeding #KIA #RIp #Humanity #sacrifice #hurtgenforest #1945

“Kleine Amerikanische Schweinehunde laufen lassen!” The Hürtgen forest January, 1945. The battle for the Hürtgen forest was a major defeat for the allies, as their casualties skyrocketed to 12,000. The rocky and hilly terrain provided great defensive capabilities, and was a success for the Germans west defences, however the Americans were able to drill through the Siegfried line after several attempts and the western front collapsed. ————————————————————————- #lego #wwii #legowwii #legoww2 #ww2 #worldwar2 #war #seigfried #1945 #worldwartwo #germany #france #america

13 décembre 1944. Soldats américains infirmiers. ( Medical Company ) Les compagnies médicales ont payés, avec le génie, un lourd tribut pendant la seconde guerre mondiale. Théoriquement, La Croix sur le casque et le brassard , en plus de l'immunité pour le cas où il serait fait prisonnier, étaient sensés protéger d'une mort certaine celui ou celle qui les portaient sur les champs de bataille. Ce ne fut malheureusement pas le cas sans que l'adversaire soit pour autant fautif ni être considéré comme un criminel de guerre. #Wwii #ww2 #worldwar2 #ww2history #ww2photo #memories #1939 #1940 #1941 #1942 #1943 #1944 #1945 #history #french #war #soldier #hitler #guerre #arme #army #reich #fhurer #allemagne #ss #soldat #wehrmacht #luftwaffe #us #gi
