From July 6-9, 1944, Canadian troops, after intense combat for the Carpiquet airfield and the Ardennes abbey, and the confrontation of the young soldiers of the Hitlerjugend, finally succeed at seizing control of Caen, now nothing more than ruins under which 2,000 civilians lay dead. Frederick Jeanne provides here a rich history, chronicling the intense action with revealing images.
