Historical Background:
Beginning in June 1940, the French army faces the second phase of the German offensive launched in May.
The XXV Corps, composed of the 85th, the 241st Division and the 4th DCR, is installed in the north of Beauvais to defend the region to the North and West. The 4th DCR covers the western flank, while the 85th Division and the 241st DI defend access routes from the north.
The 4th DCR installs a defense held by infantry and antitank range, under the protection of artillery and heavy armor-B1 bis. A first line of resistance is established on the axis Bonnières - Savignies. A second is mounted on the axis Pierrefite - Herchies - Milly. The Engineering organized the defense of Herchies, where the PC Division moved, with a squadron of the 10th Cuirassiers motorcyclist.
Tanks protect the development of this device, and then align the large tanks placed near Milly, to be able to strike back against north or west of the town.
During the 8th of June, the Germans, positioned on Crillon, attacked the French defenses by means of light elements. Blocked from the front, suffering heavy casualties, then they try to circumvent the French by their sides. Overwhelmed, the French troops decided to retreat on the night of June 8 to 9
The 4th DCR was ordered to cover the retreat and fall back via the bridge of Milly-sur-Thérain. From 3 am, the heavy armored French throw against attacks point north of Bonnières to protect troops evacuating St. Omer and wood Moimont.
