Operation Goodwood, July 1944 by Perry Moore
Book DescriptionRommel and Montgomery were old foes since 1941. Now they faced off once again in Normandy. Operation Goodwood was the largest tank assault in the Normandy campaign, as over 700 tanks in three British armoured divisions attempted to bust out of the bocage country. After all, the objectives were only seven miles distant. Rommel, his forces armed with over 200 tanks including Tiger I and Tiger IIs, plus more than 75 dreaded 88mm guns, ripped apart Montgomery's plans. Soon the wheatfields ran red with blood and burned with hundreds of British tanks. Kursk in Normandy is a meticulous examination of Operation Goodwood. The author describes in detail the bloody and vicious fighting that characterised the operation, adding in first-hand accounts for extra flavour. There is much detail on the units involved from both sides, and the tactics employed, as well as numerous statistics and tables concerning weapon/tank armour effectiveness and other data. The text is supplemented by an extensive selection of rare photographs sourced from British and German archives (many previously unpublished), plus 4 pages of colour AFV profiles and a selection of detailed maps.
