On November 16th, 1944, the Allies launched Operation Queen, which was a concentrated thrust across the Rur river, attempting to reach the Rhine. The Allies hoped this attack would penetrate the German lines and allow them to capture dams all along the Rur, as well as reaching German positions on the Rhine. The dams were critical to German industry, and also had the potential for flooding the valley if destroyed by the Germans. The operation was preceded by an immense bombardment from both aircraft and artillery. The advance began with high hopes, as the Allies possessed significant numerical advantages. However, determined German resistance slowed the Allied advance everywhere along the line, especially in the Hürtgen Forest, the center of the Allied thrust. The battle in the forest was bloody and frustrating for the Allies, as German resistance was tenacious and difficult to root out. By mid-December, the Allies had barely reached the Rur River when the Germans launched their own offensive, known to the Allies as the Battle of the Bulge. The German offensive took the Allies by surprise, and pushed them back. This ended Operation Queen abruptly. The Allies would not resume offensive operations until February of 1945, after the Battle of the Bulge had ended and German forces were effectively depleted to nothing.

Ms. Patti Moree has been a volunteer here at the museum for several years, and done a yeoman's job in our archives. Today was her last day, and I can't start to tell you how much she will be missed. Not only are we losing a member of our museum family, but she leaves a huge vacancy in our archives. So...if any archivists with time to spare would like a challenge, give me a ring.

German scientists brought to United States to work on rocket technology History.com Staff 16 Nov 17 In a move that stirs up some controversy, the United States ships 88 German scientists to America to assist the nation in its production of rocket technology. Most of these men had served under the Nazi regime and critics in the United States questioned the morality of placing them in the service of America. Nevertheless, the U.S. government, desperate to acquire the scientific know-how that had produced the terrifying and destructive V-1 and V-2 rockets for Germany during WWII, and fearful that the Russians were also utilizing captured German scientists for the same end, welcomed the men with open arms. Realizing that the importation of scientists who had so recently worked for the Nazi regime so hated by Americans was a delicate public relations situation, the U.S. military cloaked the operation in secrecy. In announcing the plan, a military spokesman merely indicated that some German scientists who had worked on rocket development had “volunteered” to come to the United States and work for a “very moderate salary.” The voluntary nature of the scheme was somewhat undercut by the admission that the scientists were in “protective custody.” Upon their arrival in the United States on November 16, newsmen and photographers were not allowed to interview or photograph the newcomers. A few days later, a source in Sweden claimed that the scientists were members of the Nazi team at Peenemeunde where the V-weapons had been produced. The U.S. government continued to remain somewhat vague about the situation, stating only that “certain outstanding German scientists and technicians” were being imported in order to “take full advantage of these significant developments, which are deemed vital to our national security.” The situation pointed out one of the many ironies connected with the Cold War. The United States and the Soviet Union, once allies against Germany and the Nazi regime during World War II, were now in a fierce contest to acquire the best and brightest scientists who had helped arm the German forces in order to construct weapons systems to threaten each other. https://youtu.be/WjFTN-YdK_M
