Relax soldier, Paris has fallen. You deserve a rest!
The 352nd Pionier Battalion was positioned in the ruins of Caen, attempting to hold the city against advanced British units of the 21st Army Group. The British drew early blood, destroying the Pionier’s MG34 team with an artillery strike. But the tide turned against the British, losing their sniper team and FAO in quick succession. A small SMG Force close assaulted a PIAT team and then endured a rapid fire assault from a full strength rifle squad. Ultimately, the British withdrew, leaving the Pioniers to hold Caen.
