Saw this on a Facebook page dedicated to Uber-Panzers. This is not that uncommon a view from this type of person. This is not to start a debate where his calumny is challenged but to give some insight into how low is the level of understanding of your average Facebook expert. This cretin actually has standing and is considered one of the more knowledgeable of the breed and not a single member of the group challenged his version of history. not that hard to stall a British offensive.... Using a Tiger was probably overkill.....................A German letter captured in August of 1944 states unequivocally that, “Tommy is no soldier.” The official British Army history of the Normandy Campaign does not analyze the morale of the British troops who served in Normandy. Most of the leading unofficial accounts of the campaign manage to imply, without ever stating explicitly, that morale was at best mediocre and in some units downright poor and suggest that the British Army only won because it was able to employ overwhelming material superiority against the Germans. The British Army had several operations stall before minimal resistance over the course of the war. Poor leadership and an aversion to taking casualties seem to be the root causes. The aversion to taking casualties stemmed from senior British commanders experiences in World War I where most of them served on the front lines and experienced the horrific casualties of that war. They were also acutely aware that such losses again would be unacceptable to a war-weary British population. Several British Army operations in Normandy were stalled when faced by minimal resistance: Operation Perch (Villers-Bocage): 7 June 1944 (Wittmann w/6 Tigers, 2.Kp, SS Tiger Bn 101 engaged A Sqdn 4th CLY) Authie & Putot-en-Bessin: 7 June 1944 Bretteville l'Orgueilleuse: 8 June 1944 Le Mesnil-Patry: 11 June 1944 Operation Epsom: 24 June 1944 Operations Martlet & Dauntless: 25 June 1944 Operation Windsor (Carpiquet Airfield): 4 July 1944 Operation Charnwood: 8 July 1944 Operation Jupiter (Hill 112): 10 July 1944 Operation Stack: 10 July 1944 Operation Goodwood (Bourguébus Ridge): 18 July 1944 And there were many more as the war progressed, in my humble opinion, due more to British commanders’ desire to avoid casualties than anything else.
