    HOTTON-SOY-MELINES-NY QUATRE-BRAS CROSSROADS, BELGIUM, 21 December 1944: Finding himself deprived of armored fighting elements, the commandant of the 3rd Armored Division’s CCR, Colonel Robert Howze hurriedly called Captain Clifford Mize, leading Company ‘A’ of the 32nd Armored Regiment (situated at the Erezée bridge) back to Soy. When Mize arrived with his sixteen Shermans he received orders to take control of a small force, combining his medium tank company with Company ‘C’, 33rd Armored Regiment (M5A1 light tanks) and Company ‘B’, 36th Infantry Regiment. His mission was three-fold. To take the Quatre-Bras crossroads, to send reinforcements to the Hotton garrison as soon as possible, and to provide protection to the HQ in Soy. Mize divided his force in three parts, sending one group, commanded by Captain Smithers, towards Hotton. At 0900 hours, protected by the same fog that hid the Germans during their advance, Mize took command of the second group and attacked swiftly towards the crossroads. In less than ten minutes he seized control of the crossroads. A holding force consisted of a platoon of infantry and six Sherman tanks was left in defense of the place.

    Almost 20 years ago CH launched the independent publishing movement with its first ALL AMERICAN historical module by Ian Daglish (dec.)—and now things have come full circle.
