  U.S. Ninth Army - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The US Ninth Army was one of the main US combat commands used during the campaign in northwest Europe in 1944 and 1945.
Ninth Army was the fourth US Army to come into action in France, after First Army which had taken part in the initial Overlord landings, Third Army which had first been used just after the breakout from Normandy, and Seventh Army which had landed in southern France on 15 August.
Ninth Army was isolated from the headquarters of 12th Army Group, and it was thus placed under the command of 21st Army Group along with First Army.

 Ambrose Burnside
In August, 1857, a board of army officers reported favorably upon the Burnside breechloader; but the inventor would not pay his way among the underlings of the war department, and was forced to go into bankruptcy.
The best battalions in the army were sent against this position; but the fire of artillery and infantry was so severe that nothing was gained, although the struggle was kept up till nightfall, Gen. Hooker's division being the last to attack, only to be repelled as its predecessors had been.
Burnside resigned from the army on 15 April, 1865, with a military record that does him high honor as a patriotic, brave, and able officer, to whom that bane of army life, professional jealousy, was unknown.

 PARAMETERS, US Army War College Quarterly - Summer 2000
This accomplished, the US air and naval attacks would "probably not be on a broad scale nor last long" because the war would have been resolved on the ground and American forces would lack the strength to mount a new invasion of the peninsula.
Thus was born the strategy of "limited war" based on military stalemate and negotiated settlements--which is why another of the US Army's handful of divisions is still tied down in South Korea half a century later.
This is particularly evident in the shrinking Army, as ground troops are essential to the overthrow of hostile regimes and their replacement with friendly, democratic governments.

In the middle of 1944, the Junkers aircraft company worked on a project for a low-level ground attack aircraft to replace the Henschel Hs 129 ground attack aircraft.
The engine development dragged on at Daimler-Benz, and the fact that they started rather late in the war led to all development being stopped on this Junkers aircraft project, especially since this airframe was designed around these engines.
In a way, the design lived on with the US Fairchild A-10 "Thunderbolt II" or "Warthog".

 Feldgrau :: 116.Panzer-Division
Commencing 6 August 1944, it was unable to halt the US Third Army in Brittany and was consequently encircled at Falaise, breaking out with tremendous losses when Hitler finally gave the order for a general withdrawal on 16 August 1944.
