BLOODY VERRIERES: V1 The I. SS-Panzerkorps Defence of the Verrieres-Bourguebus Ridges

BLOODY VERRIERES: V1 The I. SS-Panzerkorps Defence of the Verrieres-Bourguebus Ridges
by Gullachsen, Arthur

1-229451

I SS PanzerKorps Leibstandarte defend against the Anglo-Canadian forces in July 1944 south of Caen in the area of the Verrieres and Bourguebus ridges. The resulting battles of late July and early August 1944 saw powerful German defensive counterattacks south of Caen inflict tremendous casualties, regain lost ground and at times defeat Anglo-Canadian operations in detail. Includes maps and photographs.

Viewed by the German leadership as militarily critical, the majority of its armored assets were deployed to dominate this excellent tank country east of the Orne river. These defeats and the experience of meeting an enemy with near-equal resources exposed a flawed Anglo-Canadian offensive tactical doctrine that was overly dependent on the supremacy of its artillery forces. Furthermore, weaknesses in Allied tank technology inhibited their armored forces from fighting a decisive armored battle, forcing Anglo-Canadian infantry with massive artillery support to rely on WWI 'Bite and Hold' tactics.

Confronted with the full force of the Panzerwaffe, Anglo-Canadian doctrine at times floundered. In response, the Royal Artillery and Royal Canadian Artillery units pummeled the German tankers and grenadiers, but despite their best efforts, ground could not be captured by concentrated artillery fire alone.
