Following the failure at Villers-Bocage and a further failure at the end of June 1944 facing Hill 112 at the end ofOperation Epsom (the “Battle of the Odon”), Monty relaunched an attack against Hill 112, southwest of Caen,on 10 July 1944. In doing so, he sought to go around the D-Day objective of the capital of lower-Normandy viathe south which, at that time, was still held by the Germans. However, as had been the case at Villers-Bocage,British troops failed again at this strategic area against the formidable Tiger tanks. Under artillery barrages, thishigh ground was fiercely contested at the cost of terrible losses on both sides. Hill 112 would become a veritable“Norman Verdun”, a battle of destruction reminiscent of the hell of the Great War.Richly illustrated, this album presents a precise historical text recounting the operations hour by hour withnumerous testimonies, and provides a real film of the fighting accompanied by period photos as well as battlefieldequipment, tank profiles and then-and-now photos that make it a real guide to this battlefield.This book quickly went out of print following its publication in 2008 and this is a long-awaited reprint of a veryimportant battle.
