Hitler's Normandy Panzer Offensive

Mortain 1944

Campaign 335

Author: Steven J. Zaloga
Illustrator: Steve Noon
Publication Date: 30 May 2019

Following the successful landings in Normandy on D-Day and consolidation during Operation Cobra, the Wehrmacht was ordered to begin a counter-offensive named Operation Lüttich.

The plan was to send a large Panzer force across the First U.S. Army sector, cutting off its spearheads, and finally reach Avranches on the coast. Had this succeeded, it not only would have cut off the First U.S. Army spearheads, but also Patton's newly deployed Third U.S. Army operating in Brittany. However, thanks to an intercepted radio message, the Allies were well-prepared for the offensive and not only repelled the oncoming panzers, but went on a counter-attack that would lead to a whole German army becoming encircled in the Falaise Pocket.

Fully illustrated with stunning full-color artwork, this book tells the story of Operation Lüttich, the failed offensive which ended any prospect of Germany winning the Battle of Normandy.
