[quote=lipton]Je suis en train de faire quelques recherches sur le complexe xyz depuis plusieurs semaines et j'avoue que je suis plus qu'impressionné par l'exploit réalisé par ces hommes du 502th qui ont réussi à anéantir la garnison allemande cantonnée dans ce corps de ferme.
Bref, tout ca pour dire que le choix du régiment est vraiment plus que cornélien.
Et pour ne rien faciliter, ce qu'ont réalisé les hommes du 501th aux écluses de la Braquette le 6 juin à proximité de Carentan force également le respect.

Désolé de te reprendre mais je ne fais pas d'erreur: l'état major us avait appelé ce complexe en effet WXYZ mais les paras du 502th qui avaient pour mission d'anéantir ce complexe l'avait nommé XYZ....
Les 2 noms sont donc TOTALEMENT valables et donc, par conséquence, je n'ai pas fait d'erreur Curahee...

Voici les liens avec cartes à l'appui; seul petit hic: les 2 sources sont en anglais....
Pour ce qui est de l'action au complexe xyz, ceux qui possèdent le premeir volet de BIA doivent voir de quoi je parle...il s'agit de l'assaut mené par 2 paras du 502th au tout début du jeu(de mémoire la 2ème ou 3ème mission).
Pour plus de détails sur cette mission, vous pouvez aller jeter un oeil sur le site de BIA, et dans les différents trailers disponibles, il y en a 1 qui parle de l'assaut xyz.
Pour faire rapide, 2 hommes(oui j'ai bien dit 2!!!) du 502th (dont le sergent Harrsion Summers) ont pris d'assaut ce complexe au matin du jour j et ont anénanti la garnison allemande forte d'une compagnie en tuant environ 70 soldats allemands.


"The house where CASSIDY'S CP was located was really in a detached position in relation to the other W-X-Y-Z buildings, being on the north-south running road, whereas the rest of the houses which were being used as billets by the German artillerymen and the barracks proper were distributed along both sides of the road running southwest toward REUVILLE. The ground between was well grown with trees and shrubs and there were several low hedges, which provided the CP with a considerable insulation against the sights and sounds of the conflict.
After the quick capture of the first house where CASSIDY set up his CP, about 15 men went on down the REUVILLE road to contend with the enemy at the other houses. They moved along in squad column, it being impossible to deploy because of the thick hedgerows which bound the road on both sides. One other thing handicapped them from the outset?they were a mixed group who had never worked together before and scarcely a man knew any of the others by name. S SGT HARRISON SOMMERS of Company B didn't know a single man in the detail. So he figured it would be easier to start the assault singlehanded than to attempt to give orders. He walked right up to the first house and kicked the door in.
The Germans inside the first room were firing through ports in the side of the building. They looked up only as he burst in on them, firing a tommy gun from the shoulder. Four of them dropped from the fire. Others, including a number of civilians, ran from the rear of the building and escaped to the third house. The second house, located diagonally across the road, was taken without difficulty, the Germans having fled from it. From nearly in front of the second house, a machine gun manned by PVT WILLIAM A. BURT was set up alone the road to fire on the third house at a range of about 50 yards. The Germans replied with rifles and machine pistols, but BURT'S fire, trained on their ports, made them keep their heads down and their return fire was wild. BRANDENBERGER and SUMMERS sprinted for the door and made it. But as they closed in next the wall, something exploded next to BRANDENBERGER, knocking him down and mangling his left arm. SUMMERS went on alone and smashed the door in, firing as he did it. There were six Germans inside. They were still busy at the ports, firing toward the road, and crouching low at their weapons. He shot them all down with one sweep of the gun. As he moved on toward the next house, a captain from the 82d Division joined him. The captain was plugged by a sniper before he had gone 20 yards and SUMMERS never had the chance to learn his name.
SUMMERS went through the next five houses in this same manner, one man aiding him?PVT JOHN CAMIN, armed only with a carbine. The two men switched weapons from house to house, one covering with the carbine while the other rushed the door with the tommy gun. All of the houses had thick stone walls which were slotted for fire. The Germans within them continued to fire on the road. PVT BURT moved his gun on down the road and continued to fire at the embrasures. SUMMERS and CAMIN went on from building to building, taking no prisoners because no chance afforded, fighting and firing, and saying nothing to one another.
Thirty of the enemy were killed in the five dwellings. Then the two men rushed a larger building beyond the last house. They kicked the door open. It was the troop messhall. There were 15 men at the tables, apparently paying no heed to the fighting. SUMMERS cut them down as they started to rise.(The account of this exploit was given by SUMMERS and CAMIN and supported by the other eye-witnesses. SUMMERS got the DSC and his commission for what he did. He was asked by the HO: Why did you do it?" He is an extremely conservative and intelligent type of soldier. He answered: "I have no idea why. I know now that it was a crazy thing to do and I wouldn't do it again in the same circumstances. But once started, I felt that I had to finish. The other men were hanging back. They didn't seem to want to fight.")
The group?SUMMERS and CAMIN and the men along the road?
then moved on against the large building at the end of the line. This was the barracks proper, a double-storied stone structure with thick walls. There was a large hedgerow, with a thick dirt embankment, between them and the building, and they made it that far without any difficulty. Confronting them now was a perfectly flat and open field, about 75 yards wide. As they came up to the hedge, a German sniper opened fire on the line from somewhere off on the right. He picked off several men while the right of the line was trying to deploy through the orchard.
They went on through the hedge and tried to rush the barracks. As they did so, fire crashed in on them from the building and from the snipers on the right flank. Four men were killed. Four were wounded. That stopped what remained of the party and they recoiled to the hedgerow, leaving their unknown dead behind them.
There was a haystack next the barracks and next the haystack, a shed. BURT fired tracer into the haystack until it caught fire. The fire spread to the shed; it was an ammunition storage and the stuff began to explode. That had no effect on the barracks but Germans came pouring out of the shed. They were shot down?about 30 of them?as they tried to dash across the open space to the barracks or the field beyond.
The volunteer with the 8l mm mortar who had been dispatched to the scene by CASSIDY never arrived, though no one ever found out why. However, CASSIDY had also sent along S SGT ROY NICKRENT and a bazooka. NICKRENT got there about the time that the shed began exploding. He moved on down the inside the hedgerow on the far side of the road until he drew almost opposite the barracks. Then he kicked holes in the embankment until he could stand on it, got in behind a tree and opened fire with the bazooka. He fired seven rounds and all of them exploded through the barracks roof; as he saw it, there was no use firing at the walls because they were much too thick. The 60 mm mortars were firing at the same time but the action was too closely joined for an effective use of this weapon and the shells were falling well beyond the building. At the seventh round, NICKRENT saw smoke curl up from the building. He figured that had done the work and he went back to the CP.
LT EVERS meanwhile had tried to get up to the men deployed along the hedgerow fire line but was hit by a bullet while running across the field. The men waiting there saw NICKRET'S last bazooka round set the upper story of the barracks afire. So did LTS COMBS and THEODORE S. RICHARDS who arrived just after EVERS was hit. The Germans ran from the building and the men at the hedgerow poured fire into them
as they fled in the other direction.
It was timed to a nicety?they had picked the one worst moment for a retreat. The hour was 1530. The first elements of the 4th Infantry Division were just then coming into the position after their march across the Causeway. Moving westward toward the barracks along the same road was the Regimental assembly party of 502d Regiment under LT COL MICHAELIS. The remaining Germans?about 100 of them?were in the majority killed by the men who had invested the building. Others were dispatched or captured by the two larger bodies which were converging on the scene.
The point of the MICHALIS party, commanded by CAPT J. J. HATCH, bumped into this action when HATCH, marching along the road, saw 15 or 20 Germans huddled together in a field west of the barracks. He sent back for a machine gun. The Germans ran. The first scout, PVT STANLEY GRUBER, fired at them with an M-1. Their return fire hit GRUBER through both legs. The Germans kept running. The other men loaded GRUBER in a shelter-half and carried him to CASSIDY'S CP. They picked up about 30 prisoners along the way.
SUMMERS and his group sat down in the last house and took a smoke."
