THE QUEST FOR OPERATIONAL MANEUVER IN THE NORMANDY CAMPAIGN
PDF link

A very interesting and informative doctoral thesis, particularly with respect to armored operations.

Highly recommend a look.

Good read.

A similar book is also:
The Armoured Campaign in Normandy by Stephen Napier

He was an interesting guy (died in 2017). link

He expanded the dissertation Blutarski found into a book, Tank Tactics: from Normandy to Lorraine, which is available on Amazon (among others) link . I recognize the cover and think one of my mates may have it. If so, I'll have to borrow it to read.

Thanks for the link to his earlier work.

Jarymowycz is of the school 'If you don't fight the way the Germans fight then you can't fight'. His book is very partial. As long as you know he has an agenda then you can discard his bias and concentrate on the facts in the book.
This is the hardback from 2001
