A breakthrough has occurred near Caen the like of which we have never seen. That stark assessment on 8 August 1944 reflected the German reaction to Operation Totalize, the first attack mounted by First Canadian Army in World War II. Nine days later Canadian infantry rooted out the last German defenders of Falaise, but thousands had escaped from Normandy to fight again. That Totalize and Tractable, its successor, failed to trap the Germans in Normandy has been the subject of controversy for sixty years. In this book, Brian Reidhas undertaken the first detailed study of Totalize and Tractable, including an examination of the part played by both land and air forces in the battles.
