Seems like the 5th was pretty exposed even at the beginning - they were significantly forward deployed compared to the Germans and the rest of the Americans

If you look at where they ended up they were way out on their own - no wonder the division got destroyed

It does lend more ammo to the whole "they were sent for Reset" line - Lodz is so far from the stated goal of securing the Polish Baltic coast that it makes no sense otherwise for them to be there - and basically with no support - doesnt look like any other NATO unit was anywhere near them
