'A breakthrough has occurred near Caen the like of which we have never seen.' This stark assessment, made by a senior German officer on the evening of 8th August 1944, was the German reaction to Operation Totalize, the Canadian attack planned and led by General Guy Simonds that threatened to trap the German army. Handsomely illustrated with maps, photographs and specially commissioned graphics of armoured vehicles and weapons, this major work is the first new study of a key Canadian operation in Normandy to appear for many years that is based on original research in primary sources.

An excellent book. Brings to light a great moment in Canada' s past. The Army really shines in 1944 -45, as it helps to bring down the Nazi war machine. Well explained describing military equipment and tactics of the period
