Stopping the Panzers: Canada's Forgotten Overlord Role
Historians have traditionally criticized the 3rd Canadian Division for its 'slow' progress after 6 June, for its failure to take Caen when it had a chance, and for succumbing to German counter-attacks and digging in on the Oak Line. But recent scholarship indicates that -- Montgomery's aspiration to get ashore and "crack about with tanks" notwithstanding -- the Canadian role was to seize the Oak Line, dig in and kill the Panzer counter-attack on Operation Overlord itself.
