After the German counter attack on Hamich had failed, the Germans began pulling back from the town and by 0800 hours, the situation was under control. Several M4 Shermans of the 745th tank Battalion, that had not entered town the day before, fired a salvo of high explosive shells with timed fuses from the woods to the south-east. These shells were aimed at the remaining enemy held buildings in the northern part of town. The lethal bombardment allowed the remnants of Third Battalion inside Hamich to move north and clear the last few buildings of German resistance.
With Hamich now secure, the Third Battalion advanced to occupy a ridgeline north of town and held that position until the 23rd of November, during which it managed to capture roughly one hundred prisoners and inflicted serious losses on German troops. The ridge was taken with relative ease on the 19th due to the enemy forces being so depleted from their previous counter-attacks.
The First Battalion of the 16th Infantry Regiment had taken severe losses during the fight for Hamich, and they were pulled off the line on the 19th of November and moved to the vicinity of Gressenich. Harley Reynolds, of B Company, produced a casualty report after the battle which stated that only 27 men were left standing on the 19th of November. C Company had suffered similar losses, starting the attack with roughly 160 men, they left Hamich with 31. In its current state, the First Battalion was effectively a spent force and could not be considered combat effective until it had been brought back up to strength. Between the 16th and 21st of November 1944, the 16th Infantry Regiment suffered a total of 906 casualties in the vicinity of Hamich and Hill 232.
The attack on Hamich is considered to be one of the bloodiest engagement that the 16th Infantry Regiment participated in during the Second World War. A total of six Distinguished Service Crosses (one of which was upgraded to the Medal of Honor in 2014) and one Medal of Honor were awarded to men of the 16th Infantry Regiment for their part in taking Hamich and the vitally strategic position of Hill 232. The casualty rates and conditions that the men fought in were second only to those suffered during the invasion of Normandy. Despite this, the battle for Hamich is largely forgotten and overshadowed by the outbreak of the German Ardennes offensive only three weeks after Hamich was taken.
