June 23: The Bocage Area

Today, Tim and Sharon went to the Bocage area, stopping at Villars Bocage Hill 213. This is where Michael Wittmann (German tank commander) stopped the British 7th Armored Division, in the attack toward Caen. The hedgerows were so thick the British didn't know the German Panzer units were 10 feet away from them. The pictures in this post are of Hill 213 and the hedgerows
