Attacker: British
Defender: German


At the end of July 1944 in Normandy, the IInd Canadian Corps under General Simonds attempted to vainquish the German resistance south of Caen. But the commitment of two SS Armoured-Korps made each kilometer of progression extremely costly. Moreover the Germans had built each Norman town in strongpoints the Canadians must conquer.

On 7 August, the Operation Totalize began with waves of Lancaster and Halifax heavy bombers. May-sur-Orne vanished in the bombs dust. Tanks and infantry sprang in the morning hours of 8 August. The French Canadians of The Fusiliers Mont Royal under Lieutenant-colonel Gauvreau suffered losses on their departure line. In the vicinity of May-sur-Orne a deluge of artillery and machine-guns fire stopped dead two assaults of the Canadians. The allied attack was renewed with support of Crocodiles flame-thrower tanks; after a fierce resistance, the German grenadiere withdrew, around 6 pm. The Fusiliers Mont Royal entered May-sur-Orne.
