Overview
From July 18 - 20, 1944, British and Canadian forces launched Operation Goodwood in order finally to capture Caen and push the Germans back towards the south, beyond Bourguebus. Among the armored divisions engaged in the fighting, the book follows the British 11th Armoured Division in particular.
