Relax soldier, Paris has fallen. You deserve a rest!
Battle for Bréville (2)
Bréville is still in the hands of the Axis, and the German 346th Infantry Division does not seem to let itself being dislodged, after nearly a week of fierce battles and breakthroughs by the British 6th Airborne Division.
If the British gradually gain ground, the village is far from being under control, that's why a squadron tank from the 13th / 18th Royal Hussars has been sent in reinforcements.
It should make it possible to eliminate a pocket of German resistance in the village's surroundings and to defeat the armoured forces of the Reich.
Having found an ideal shooting location, a Sherman Firefly VC remained in position for more than 2 hours to eliminate a Panzer IV and burn down a second.
This battle was won, but Bréville still remained a thorn in the foot of the Allies.
