The Canadian Retribution at Normandy | History Traveler Episode 196

Throughout the Battle of Normandy, the Canadians of the 3rd Infantry Division and the Germans of the 12th SS Panzer Division found themselves locked in a battle of attrition that would mark some of the most vicious fighting of the entire campaign. After suffering a blow at Buron and Authie (as seen in the last episode) the fight shifted over to a place that has now become legendary in Canadian military history: Bretteville-l'Orgueilleuse. In this episode, we're joined by Paul Woodadge of @WW2TV to show a small part of one of the most epic fights in the battle to take Normandy.
