The fierce battle to capture the French village of Tilly-la-Campagne was an exceptionally bloody episode in the story of the allied breakout from Normandy in the summer of 1944. Lying to the South of the city of Caen, Tilly was one of a number of stone-built villages that had been fortified by the Germans to hold up the Allied advance, and it saw what was probably the worst of the infantry fighting following D-Day. The Canadian 3rd Division made five attempts to capture the village and lost well over half its fighting men within a month. This work focuses on the infantry travail around the fortified villages south of Caen. It draws on eyewitness accounts to give a portrayal of the battle and a fitting tribute to the youth of Canada and Britain who fought, and the many who died, during the breakout from Normandy in the last summer of the war in Europe.

Each battlefield visit begins with a succinct history of events followed by a description of the intense military action that determined success or failure.

Yeomen of England were called to bring their own horses to form England’s first Home Guard when a dictator assembled his army across the Channel in 1794. They went on to become one of the most famous mounted regiments of the British Army. During World War I they served on the frontline in the battles of Ypres, Neuve Chapelle, and Artois. In World War II they earned fame as one of the great tank regiments to be found on the frontline during the Normandy Landings, Battle of the Bulge, and the Rhine Crossings. This book weaves together military history and personal anecdotes to follow the regiment from its horsed days, parading under the Earl Spencer who promoted Nelson to fleet command, through moments of repressing civil rioters, on to the bloodiest of cavalry charges in World War I and exceptional achievement with tanks in World War II, only eventually to suffer what Napoleon, Kruger, the Kaiser, and Hitler could not do—be wiped out by government cuts in the 1960s. Ken Tout, who proudly served with the regiment during the Normandy landings, pays tribute to a much-loved part of the British Army.
