Route The Confrontation - Viller-Bocage
Battle of Viller-Bocage
The Battle of Villers-Bocage took place during the Second World War on 13 June 1944, one week after the Normandy Landings by the Western Allies to begin the conquest of German-occupied France. The battle was the result of a British attempt to improve their position, by exploiting a gap in the German defences west of the city of Caen. After one day of fighting in and around the small town of Villers-Bocage and a second day defending a position outside the town, the British force retired. read the whole story on Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Villers-Bocage
