The Waffen-SS in Normandy. July 1944 Operations Goodwood and Cobra
- World War II
On the ground with Germany’s armored forces
One of the greatest paradoxes of the Battle of Normandy is that the German divisions found it much harder to reach the front line than the Allies, who had to cross the sea and then deploy in a cramped bridgehead until the American breakthrough of late July 1944. The Waffen-SS were no better off than the Heer units and German high command never quite got on top of operations, as the divisions were thrown into the melee one by one.
This Casemate Illustrated looks at the SS-Panzer divisions one by one throughout Operations Goodwood and Cobra, which saw large tank battles and the collapse of the German front in Normandy. It includes over 100 photographs, alongside biographies of the commanders, and color profiles of trucks and tanks.
