Villers Bocage, France

Villers Bocage, France
The Battle of Villers-Bocage (June 13, 1944) was an unusual clash between the British and Germans in northern France during World War II. At around 0830hrs on the 13th, a British force approached from the north-west, two battalions - one of armor and the other of motorized infantry, both of the 7th Armoured Division. The British vehicle losses for that day were more than 8 Cromwell tanks, 4 Sherman Fireflies, and a number of Stuart light tanks, as well as 30 halftracks or gun carriers. During the fierce fighting, the village was almost totally destroyed.

Stalingrad, Russia

Stalingrad, Russia
The Battle of Stalingrad was a major turning point in World War II and is considered one of the bloodiest and largest battles in human history. The battle was marked by unprecedented brutality and the disregard for civilian casualties on both sides, as well as a testiment to the world the scale of devastation the Eastern Front had reached as a result of clash of ideologies. Total casualties are estimated at up to two million. The lack of exact data is the result of the Soviet government's refusal at the time to calculate the losses for fear the sacrifice might have proven too high. The Axis powers lost about a quarter of their total manpower on the Eastern Front, and never completely recovered from the defeat. For the Soviets, the victory at Stalingrad marked the start of the liberation of the Soviet Union, leading to eventual victory over Nazi Germany in May 1945.

Moscow, Russia

Moscow, Russia
On 22 June 1941 Germany and its Axis allies invaded the Soviet Union, taking the Soviet political leadership, and hence most of the Red Army, completely by surprise. Having crushed most of the Soviet air force on the ground, German forces quickly advanced deep into Soviet territory using Blitzkrieg tactics. Armoured units raced forward in pincer movements trapping and destroying entire Soviet armies. While the German Army Group North moved towards Leningrad, and Army Group South went on to conquer Ukraine, Army Group Centre was to advance towards Moscow. The Soviet defences were catastrophic, and the casualties were enormous. In early August 1941 the Germans captured the city of Smolensk, an important stronghold on the road to Moscow, but the engagement in the Smolensk area blocked the German advance until mid-September, effectively disrupting the blitzkrieg. On October 2, 1941, Army Group Centre under Fedor von Bock finally launched its attack against Moscow, code-named Operation Typhoon.

Matmata, Tunisia

Matmata, Tunisia
The Tunisia Campaign was a series of World War II battles that took place in Tunisia during the North African Campaign of the World War II, between forces of the German/Italian Axis, and allied forces consisting primarily of US, British and small numbers of Vichy French. The battle opened with general success of the German forces, but the massive supply and numerical superiority of the allies eventually led to their complete defeat. The result was the loss of over 275,000 German and Italian prisoners of war, including most of the Deutsches Afrika Korps (DAK). It is often referred to as the Battle of Tunisia.

Leningrad, Russia

Leningrad, Russia
The German assault on the city of Leningrad started in the spring of 1941. The Germans believed the taking of Leningrad was very important in their quest of taking over Russia. The Defense of Leningrad took an area of over 450 km and involved 517,000 men. The defense stopped the Germans in the suburbs of the city and lasted for 83 days. The Battle of Leningrad began on July 10, 1941 and lasted over three years. The Germans, along with the Finnish army, attacked with 38 divisions and were opposed by the Northern Front and the Northwestern Front. On July 10 the Russian State Committee for Defense combined the two Russian Fronts forming the Northwest Axis to coordinate efforts. Immediately the Northwest Axis fortified regions like Krasnogvardeisk and Slutsk- Kolpino to defense the enemy. Between November 1941 and October 1942 during the seige of Leningrad , 641,803 people died of starvation. Because of the shortages in food and supplies an offensive to break the blockade was impossible. Fortunately though, a successful Russian counteroffensive at Stalingrad drained the enemy of resources needed to carry out a new attack on Leningrad that was being planned.

Caen, France

Caen, France
By the evening of June 6th, the tanks of the 21st Panzer Division, reinforced later that night by those of the 12th SS Hitlerjugend, had formed a barrier of fire and steel in front of Caen, which stopped the Allies in their tracks and banished all hopes of early deliverance for the thousands of civilians who had not fled the city after the initial bombings. The German commander brought his best divisions into play, notably most of his armoured units. The British and Canadians were pinned down in the cornfields around the city. Caen was to become the linchpin of the Battle of Normandy. The Battle of Caen was in danger of becoming bogged down – or so it appeared. The fighting turned into a war of position, with soldiers on both sides holed up in trenches. Attack followed counter-attack without any tangible results. The Great War cast its grim shadow across the Normandy front.

St. Mere Eglise, France

St. Mere Eglise, France
The Germans took St Mere Eglise on June 18th 1940 and the next four years passed relatively peacefully, soldiers were billeted in the town and a swastika flew over the town hall. During 1943 the number and quality of the occupying troops decreased. By the time of D-day the town was occupied by Austrian anti aircraft gunners, driving wood burning trucks. During 1944 there were frequent allied air raids on the town and the night of June 5th - 6th was no different. A house in the square caught fire, (now the site of the airborne museum) possibly caused by one of the marker flares dropped by the pathfinders. The inhabitants formed a chain with buckets from the pump in the square (now a listed monument). At this point parachutes were seen in the night sky and began landing in and around the town. It was the 82nd airborne division. The Germans opened fire and ordered the locals into their houses. The Austrians left and only a few Germans continued the fight. The town was taken by members of the 505th led by Lieutenant-Colonel Edward C. Krause.

El Alamein, France

El Alamein, France
The Battle of Alamein, or more correctly the Second Battle of El Alamein, marked a significant turning point in the Western Desert Campaign of World War II. The battle lasted from October 23 to November 3, 1942. Following the First Battle of El Alamein, which had stalled the Axis advance, General Bernard Montgomery took command of the British Commonwealth's Eighth Army from Claude Auchinleck in August 1942. Success in the battle turned the tide in the North African Campaign. By July 1942 the German Afrika Korps under General Erwin Rommel had struck deep into Egypt, threatening the British Commonwealth forces' vital supply line across the Suez Canal. Faced with overextended supply lines and lack of reinforcements and yet well aware of massive Allied reinforcements arriving, Rommel decided to strike at the Allies while their build-up was still not complete. This attack on 30 August 1942 at Alam Halfa failed, and expecting a counterattack by Montgomery´s Eighth Army, the Afrika Korps dug in. After six more weeks of building up forces the Eighth Army was ready to strike. 200,000 men and 1,000 tanks under Montgomery made their move against the 100,000 men and 500 tanks of the Afrika Korps.
