In all, about 100 US vehicles were abandoned or destroyed, including 23 M5A1 and M4 tanks, 15 M7 105mm selfpropelled howitzers, 14 armored cars, 30 jeeps and 25 2½ ton trucks. The destruction of this trapped column distracted the lead elements of the Panzer Lehr Division from their main assignment of Bastogne. The next element from the CCB, 10th Armored Division, to encounter Panzer Lehr was Team O'Hara, located near Wardin, covering the southeastern approach to Bastogne. An attack by KG Fallois pushed them out of Wardin and back towards Marvie on the afternoon of 19 December, but further German attacks were stymied.

B, 630th Tank Destroyer Battalion in newly dug foxholes outside Wiltz on the road to Bastogne on 20 December. By this stage, the company had lost all of its 3in. towed anti-tank guns and was assigned by Middleton to defend the approaches to Bastogne. (NARA) Oberst Dempwolff, attempted to reorganize his demoralized troops, and put off any further attacks until the delayed assault guns finally arrived. 988 at Haller launched an attack against a forward US outpost near Waldbillig. 987 advanced through a gorge on the other side of Waldbillig forcing the US tank destroyer and cavalry detachments to retreat.

The division was led by Brigadier General Anthony McAuliffe, the divisional artillery officer, as its commander, Maxwell Taylor was back in the US. The division had little time to prepare for the move, and the troops left without adequate cold weather uniforms or ammunition. In view of the increasingly precarious situation around Bastogne, Bradley ordered Middleton to pull his corps headquarters out of the city on 19 December and leave command of Bastogne to McAuliffe. Julian Ewell's 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment (PIR) was the first into Bastogne, and deployed a combat team from 3rd Bn, 501st PIR to try to determine the situation along the road to Mageret.
