Moving north, the French First Army liberated Lyon on 2 September 1944 and moved into the southern Vosges Mountains, capturing Belfort and forcing the Belfort Gap at the close of November 1944. Following the capture of the Belfort Gap, French operations in the area of Burnhaupt destroyed the German IV Luftwaffe Korps. In February 1945, with the assistance of the U.S. XXI Corps, the First Army collapsed the Colmar Pocket and cleared the west bank of the Rhine River of Germans in the area south of Strasbourg.
The battle cut off the German "308. Grenadier-Regiment" on November 24, forcing the German troops to either surrender or intern themselves in Switzerland. On November 25, 1st Army Corps units liberated both Mulhouse (taken by a surprise armored drive) and Belfort (taken by assault of the 2 DIM). Realizing the German defense had been too static for their own good, General De Lattre (commander of the French First Army) directed both corps of his army to close on Burnhaupt in order to encircle the German "LXIII. Armeekorps" (the former "IV. Luftwaffe Korps"). This maneuver succeeded on November 28, 1944, and resulted in the capture of over 10,000 German troops, crippling the "LXIII. Armeekorps". French losses, however, had also been significant, and plans to immediately clear the Alsatian Plain of German forces had to be shelved while both sides gathered strength for the next battles.
A German bridgehead on the west bank of the Rhine 40 miles (65 km) long and 30 miles (50 km) deep was formed in November 1944 when the German defenses in the Vosges Mountains collapsed under the pressure of an offensive by the U.S. 6th Army Group. General Jean de Lattre de Tassigny's French First Army forced the Belfort Gap and destroyed the German "IV Luftwaffe Korps" near the town of Burnhaupt in the southern Vosges Mountains. Soon thereafter, French forces reached the Rhine in the region north of the Swiss border between Mulhouse and Basel. Likewise, in the northern Vosges Mountains, the French 2nd Armored Division spearheaded a U.S. Seventh Army advance, forced the Saverne Gap, and drove to the Rhine, liberating Strasbourg on 23 November 1944. The effect of these two advances was to collapse the German presence in southern Alsace west of the Rhine to a semi-circular-shaped bridgehead centered on the town of Colmar that came to be known as the "Colmar Pocket".
The First Army was reconstituted as the French Army B under the command of General Jean de Lattre de Tassigny in the summer of 1944. It landed in southern France after Operation Dragoon, the Allied invasion of the area. On September 25, 1944 French Army B was redesignated French First Army. Liberating Marseilles, Toulon, and Lyon, it later formed the right flank of the Allied Southern Group of Armies (also known as the U.S. Sixth Army Group) at the southern end of the Allied front line, adjacent to Switzerland. It commanded two corps, the French I and II Corps. The French First Army liberated the southern area of the Vosges Mountains, including Belfort. Its operations in the area of Burnhaupt destroyed the German "IV Luftwaffe Korps" in November 1944. In January 1945 it defended against operation "Nordwind", the last major German offensive on the western front. In February 1945, with the assistance of the U.S. XXI Corps, the First Army collapsed the Colmar Pocket and cleared the west bank of the Rhine River of Germans in the area south of Strasbourg. In March 1945, the First Army fought through the Siegfried Line fortifications in the Bienwald Forest near Lauterbourg. Subsequently, the First Army crossed the Rhine near Speyer and captured Karlsruhe and Stuttgart. Operations by the First Army in April 1945 encircled and captured the German "XVIII S.S. Armee Korps" in the Black Forest and cleared southwestern Germany. At the end of the war, the motto of the French First Army was "Rhin et Danube", referring to the two great German rivers that it had reached and crossed during its combat operations.
During the course of the second phase, the DB was the first to penetrate Alsace and the first at Rhin. Making way on November 14 from the high valley of Doubs, the 1 DB mounted the offensive on Belfort. The division operating within the cadre of the 1st Army Corps (général Béthouart) slides along Héricourt along the French and Swiss border and apprehended Delle on November 18. The next day, the CC3 was in Alsace and, at 1800, the tank platoon of lieutenant Loisy was able to raise the fanion in the Rhin, at Rosenau. The latter was part of the 4th squadron of the 2nd African Chasseur Regiment. This officer would meet his end on the next November 23, when his tank was hit by an anti-tank launcher during the attack on caserne Lefebvre at Muhouse. On the 20, colonel Caldairou entered the city. Nevertheless, despite the success resulting from the junction of the 1st and 2nd Army Corps in the region of Burnhaupt, Colmar remained well protected. During two months, the division held in the snow a defensive sector on Dollar, south of that of what would be later referred to as the Colmar Pocket. On January 20, the 1st Army relaunched the assault on the two northern and southern flanks of the pocket, in the middle of a snow storm. Following a three-week struggle, Alsace was liberated and Colmar seized on February 2. The division, which engaged in combat since December 5 under the orders of général Sudre, following an annoying progression in between mines, witnessed a short exploitation which led to Chalampé on February 9 in the morning. Accordingly, the division finished the campaign of France started on August 15, 1944 and which was over six months later on the Rhin.
