It was the centre-piece of a campaign which began with the greatest amphibious operation in history. This was followed by two months of ferocious fighting — house by house, hedge by hedge beneath massive air bombardments as the elite of the British, Canadian and German armies burned away in the unprecedented savagery of a bitter holocaust. Here is a superb tribute to the bravery and tenacity of both Allied and enemy troops”
