Following the successful 6 June 1944 D-Day landings on the coast of German-occupied Normandy, Allied 21st Army Group commander General Bernard Montgomery tasked Lieutenant-General Guy Simonds'll Canadian Corps with mounting a major offensive from the Bourguébus Ridge. The resulting Operation Totalize sought to capture the high ground north of Falaise, tie down German armour and seal the forming pocket of enemy forces. This highly detailed and superbly illustrated book recounts in full detail the build-up to and execution of the operation. It also examines the command challenges provided by the initial break-in phase and the attempt to employ innovative infantry tactics to overcome the bitter resistance offered by elite Waffen-SS formations, including the Hitlerjugend of 12.SS-Panzer-Division. Book jacket., In Operation "Totalize," LieutenantGeneral Guy Simonds's II Canadian Corps launched an attack from its positions along the Bourguebus Ridge, south of Caen, striking southsoutheast astride the main Caen-Ealaise road toward the high ground that dominated the town of Ealaise and the key west-east lateral road that ran through this town. Using sophisticated operational art, the initial break-in achieved rapid success; indeed, more tactical success than any previous Allied break-in attack in Normandy.However, despite this rapid initial success, "Totalize" did not secure a decisive operationallevel victory. Indeed, Simonds' forces subsequently struggled to swiftly complete the second break-in battle, and to transit into rapid exploitation operations. Had Simonds's forces been successful, the German army may not have been able to extract themselves from the Falaise pocket, and would have been surrounded and defeated--possibly bringing about the early end of the war in Europe.", In Operation Totalize , Lieutenant­General Guy Simonds's II Canadian Corps launched an attack from its positions along the BourgueŽbus Ridge, south of Caen, striking south­southeast astride the main Caen-Ealaise road toward the high ground that dominated the town of Ealaise and the key west-east lateral road that ran through this town.
