Soldiers in Normandy - The British (Mini-Guides Nr. 23)
Commonwealth troops engaged in Normandy suffered because of a pusillanimous command, generated by an important crisis of numbers. On the ground, a lack of flexibility and initiative came of it. More over, some troops, exhausted by desert war or too new, were unable to adapt to the normand layout. The armoured fighting vehicles crew had an outclassed material, but the artillerymen, well prepared and with a performant artillery, dealt real blows to the ennemy.
