The Battle of the Odon evokes the clash between the British Army and the II SS Panzer Korps as they attacked across the Odon Valley during Operation Epsom, in June 1944. The offensive was intended to outflank and seize the German-occupied city of Caen, an important Allied objective for D-Day, but which would remain in German hands until mid-July.
The resources committed by Montgomery were extensive, especially considering the enemy only numbered a few hundred infantrymen, who were supported by an hundred or so panzers. Yet the German defence was skilful and ferocious, and the Odon River, which joins with the Orne River at Caen, would prove to be a more significant obstacle than expected.
Using contemporary photographs and documents, this book provides day-by-day details of the operation that formed just one part of what is commonly referred to as the Battle of Normandy.
