In the narrative of D-Day the Canadians figure chiefly--if at all--as an ineffective force bungling their part in the early phase of Operation Overlord. The reality is quite another story. As both the Allies and the Germans knew, only Germany's Panzers could crush Overlord in its tracks. The Canadians' job was to stop the Panzers--which, as this book finally makes clear, is precisely what they did. Rescuing from obscurity one of the least understood and most important chapters in the history of D-Day, Stopping the Panzers is the first full account of how the Allies planned for and met the Panzer threat to Operation Overlord. As such, this book marks nothing less than a paradigm shift in our understanding of the Normandy campaign. Beginning with the Allied planning for Operation Overlord in 1943, historian Marc Milner tracks changing and expanding assessments of the Panzer threat, and the preparations of the men and units tasked with handling that threat. Featured in this was the 3rd Canadian Division, which, treated so dismissively by history, was actually the most powerful Allied formation to land on D-Day, with a full armored brigade and nearly 300 artillery and antitank guns under command. Milner describes how, over four days of intense and often brutal battle, the Canadians fought to a literal standstill the 1st SS Panzer Corps--which included the Wehrmacht's 21st Panzer Division; its vaunted elite Panzer Lehr Division; and the rabidly zealous 12th SS Hitler Youth Panzer Division, whose murder of 157 Canadian POWs accounted for nearly a quarter of Canadian fatalities during the fighting. Stopping the Panzers sets this murderous battle within the wider context of the Overlord assault, offering a perspective that challenges the conventional wisdom about Allied and German combat efficiency, and leads to one of the freshest assessments of the D-Day landings and their pre-attack planning in more than a decade.… (lisätietoja)

A vivid picture of this battle or series of battles. Tries to rebut the view that the Canadians underperformed on D. Day, and does a good job. ( )

A evaluation of actions on the Candaian front (often a forgotten one). Due credit is given to the Canadian efforts in blunting the intial attacks by 21st Panzer and 12th SS against the bridgehead. Interesting to note 12th SS tactical naivety in the inital attacks as well as backdrop of war crimes as action ensues. Good, easy read that requires further depth in some cases. ( )

A history of the 3rd Canadian Division from D-Day through June 10, 1944 in the Mue River watershed. Milner re-evaluates the performance of the Division given their specific objective of stopping a panzar counterattack on the Normandy beaches. A good, readable history, if repetitive in places. ( )

This volume by an eminent Canadian historian attempts to show how the supposed bungling and inept performance by Canadians during the early days of Operation Overlord was anything but. He explains how historians including Canadian and especially American and English are especially critical of the Canadian contribution to invasion efforts. He asserts that those historians have never read the actual orders the Canadians were following during the invasion and therefore have completely misunderstood that Canadians were actually achieving what they were assigned to do.

The Canadians assignment was to stop the Panzers from driving the Allied forces back into the sea and that is what they did at great cost in casualties. If it appeared they were sitting on their asses doing nothing as the Americans, asserted, they were keeping the German tanks from making any progress towards the beaches. As the author points out, when the Canadians were finished with the Germans, they never attacked Canadian troops head on again.

Unknown to many is the issue of German atrocities which led to about one in five Canadians being murdered as POW's. One of the units the Canadians faced was the fanatical Hitler Youth, an SS unit made up of Nazi teenagers who had been trained and indoctrinated by Nazi officials who were criminals themselves. Their commander, Kurt Meyer, who became enraged at his failure to beat the Canadians had the Canadians shot when captured. ( )
