FALAISE - THE ROADS OF DEATH
Normandy France August 1944
by Mark Littlejohn
Typhoon fighter bombers of the 2nd TAF strafe and rocket German troops of the 5th and 7th Panzer Army, attempting to escape from the Falaise pocket through a fifteen mile gap which remained open between the Allied armies until the 20th of August. Although large numbers of the above units managed to escape,Allied artillery and aircraft inflicted severe damage and casualties upon them, eventually nearly 50,000 German troops trapped inside the closed pocket surrendered.
Mark Littlejohn captures the dramatic events of the great battle which took place around the town of Falaise during the closing weeks of August 1944 in Normandy following the Allied invasion of France in June 1944. One can almost hear the howl of the Typhoon fighter bombers engines and feel the noise of battle around the desperate German troops and vehicles as they seek to escape the deadly trap.
