Описание: This is the story of the British breakthrough begun on 30 July by 11th Armoured Division, Guards Armoured Division, and the infantry of 15th (Scottish) Division. This was initially opposed by 21. Panzerdivision, and later by the Germans' most powerful formations in the west: 9. SS-Panzer `Hohenstaufen' and 10. SS-Panzer `Frundsberg'. Under the hot summer sun, thrust met with counter thrust in a rapidly changing mobile battle, culminating in the August struggle for mastery of Perrier Ridge and Estry, and the Germans' headlong retreat from Normandy.
In common with other titles in the 'Over the Battlefield' series, this entirely new study brings together previously unseen evidence to present an important Normandy battle in very great detail. The unfolding action is illustrated using aerial photography of the battlefield and period Army maps supported by extensive illustrations.
