Relax soldier, Paris has fallen. You deserve a rest!
Battle for Bréville (3)
Another long day in this crucial battle for this small village in Normandy which seems to become the symbol of Axis resilience.
After days of fruitless fighting, some allied advances have emerged, but the little gained ground is finally resumed.
The main objective of the 6th Airborne was to secure and control the crossroads of the town center, in order to prevent convoys of German reinforcements from reaching the headquarters of the 342 th German division.
While most of the reinforcements were indeed neutralized, some managed to sneak into the mesh of the Allied net.
While the battle was tough, but the fate of Bréville was not yet sealed, and other fights were announced in the coming days
