French Text Villers -Bocage is undoubtedly one of the most emblematic events of the Battle of Normandy. Many historians have recounted the highly documented events of J , notably the destruction of a British armored column by Obersturmführer Tiger Michael Wittmann.

    "He was the definitive historian of the fighting at Villers-Bocage, he lived there and put allot of effort into recording what happened",but u dont own the book? lol. u are the biggest fan of the battle but u dont own the perfect book about this battle ^^ must be a very good book. and again its intersting that the judgment of wittmann is. I own Dan Taylor´s book "Villers-Bocage though the lens of the german war photographer" and it is probably the most comprehensive compilation of photos of Villers-Bocage printed in best quality. Dan reconstructs the battle with some personal accounts and by following the steps and sequence the photos were taken, quite an interesting approach.

    The discussion will no doubt rumble on and the exact figures may never be determined, but one thing is clear. When he made the decision to turn against the British armour and take his Tiger into Villers-Bocage, Michael Wittmann had set out on a path that would write its own chapter in the history books.

This is an excellent book and in my opinion the authoritative guide of the fighting in and around Villers-Bocage on June 13 I had previously read Villers-Bocage by George Forty and had believed it to be the definite source until I came across this.5/5(6).
