After the 7th US Armoured Division had held out against German superiority, the area was cleared of German soldiers together with the 15th Scottish Division. This resulted in fighting that turned fatal for hundreds of soldiers and, in addition, dozens of civilian casualties in the surrounding church villages of Liessel and Neerkant.

This event is described in the book 'The Battle of the Shadow' by A. Korthals Altes. In memory and as a tribute to the war victims, this monument was unveiled in 1992.
