The Gurkhas elected to attack at night, giving them an advantage in moving towards their objective but hindering the effectiveness of their mortar support. The Herman Goerings took up prepared positions covering the farmhouse objective supported by heavy machine guns while the Fallshirmjaegers dug in around the edge of a small wood and waited for the attack. The US Infantry advanced up the flank and took up positions covering the Herman Goering and brought their mortars to bear on the German Paratroopers entrenched in the woodland.
With the Germans pinned by American mortars the gurkhas charged in to assault. In the bloody nightfighting they were able to push the Germans off the objective. Their second platoon followed close behind along with the American rifles but found themselves harassed by snipers along the way. The gukhas were continued to press the assaul,t calling off board mortars and artillery onto the enemy but they were eventually pushed back and lost the objective. The assault had cost two platoons of Indian rifleman and had nearly wiped out the falshirmjaeger force when they were saved by their reserves entering the battlefield. When the Gurkhas lost their commander in the hand to hand fighting they fled the battlefield, leaving the Americans alone to complete the attack.
The American light machine guns found a position on the edge of a copse and lay down covering fire while their infantry advanced on one side of the battlefield while their other platoon filled the gap left be the retreating Indians. As dawn broke the remaining Falshirmjaeger reserves joined the fight and the bloody fighting over the objective continued. Eventually the Allies were pushed back to their side and the battle was concluded.
