Villons-sur-Buissons, North of Caen: June 7th, 1944. (Scenario Size: Division+. Head to Head or Human vs AI for either side) When the British landed on the Calvados coast they were unaware of the close proximity of both 21st Panzer and the Hitlerjugend SS Panzer Divisions. The 21st Panzer Division had counterattacked to the coast on D-Day but had taken grievous losses in tanks in particular. With the coming of dawn on June 7th, sporadic resistance from both the 716th Infanterie and 21st Panzer Divisions was slowing the Allied advance but the British and Canadian Corps commanders were expecting to continue the advance to their day one objectives of Caen and Carpiquet airfield. The Canadians made slow progress but had cleared the villages of Buron, Authie and Franqueville before being hit by a hurriedly organised counterattack by Standartenfuhrer Meyer's Panzergrenadier-Regiment 25. The resulting engagement was one of the most vicious of the Normandy campaign and was to result in an antipathy between the Hitlerjugend and Canadians marked by atrocities on both sides.
