Invasion ist com. Normandie!

10:00 Hours 9th June 1944

Elements of 51st Highland and 3rd Canadian Division have pushed into the Northern suburbs of Caen. Units of both 12th SS Panzer and 21st Panzer Divisions have stemmed the Allied thrust into the city routed one Canadian Company. Caen itself is being put under tremendous pressure from the North as a combined arms assault is being launched by the British and the Canadians. AOK 7 has given the defence of Caen the highest priority as it is crucial to the strategic defence of the whole Normandy front. Elements of SS Panzer Grenadier Regiment 26 have been detached from front holding against the British Airborne and have been ordered into the Caen area around Herouville to assist in the defence. Reinforcements have once again been asked for.
