Historical Background:
The 3rd Division attacked Tilly-la-Campagne; although it achieved a foothold in a wood and put pressure on the village, it could not clear the place. More infantry and armor were brought forward and suffered heavy losses without improving the situation. German tanks and infantry counter-attacked and the push on this flank was called off in the afternoon.

In the center, the forward companies of the 2nd Division started up Verrieres Ridge.

On the left flank, the German forces were never completely cleared, causing trouble from the start. As the 2nd Division British forces pushed forward around these towns toward May-sur-Orne, they came under heavy fire from the ridge, enemy positions beyond the Orne and the town of May-sur-Orne. Some units did make it up the ridge, but ran into heavy armor Further advance being out of the question, the force was ordered to retreat back to the start line.
