After the disaster at Villers Bocage, there was a second hold up to the Allies penetration of the German defenses at Hill 112 when Montgomery launched a counterattack on this position, to the south west of Caen on July 10. Monty had still not taken the capital city of Normandy despite it being a primary objective for the British but at Hill 112 just as at Villers Bocage, they ran into a deluge of artillery and powerful Tiger tanks. There was quite some danger of the whole thing devolving into trench warfare which would have been a disaster for the Allied plans. This detailed book gives an hour by hour account of the fighting with many veteran accounts, photographs and other illustrations. French Text
