Historical Background:
On the 17th of June, the 6th Battalion Duke of Wellington's Regiment (6th DWR) captured Boislonde manor after a fierce battle. The day after, the III/26 Panzer Grenadier of the 12.SS Panzer Division Hitlerjugend counter-attacked to recapture Boislonde. Again fierce fighting in close combat occurred in the woods around the manor and the SS grenadiers repelled the British soldiers. East of Boislonde, the 7th DWR recaptured Hill 102 which was taken by the Germans last evening. In Boislonde, the SS grenadiers were isolated from the rear by a heavy barrage of the British artillery and finally they had to withdraw to Fonteny-le-Pesnel in defensive positions.
