This review is from: Hill 112: The Battle of the Odon: Hill 112 - Battle of the Odon (Battleground Europe - Normandy) (Kindle Edition)
I am a bit of WWII nut. This book addresses a small part of the Normandy Campaign that is not easy to write or read about. This was the mincing machine of the Western War at its worst. This battle made Monty realise his resources were not infinite. It also redresses the balance between the the Eastern and Western fronts. The SS units that fought here admitted it was tougher than where they had left, Russia. Monty planned a war of attrition as part of his master plan for the break out. Read about what he got. The 43rd Wyvern Division's finest hour, possibly.
