This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - European Theater - Battle of Caen. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Battle of Caen was part of the Battle of Normandy, which took place during the World War II. It was fought in and around the French town of Caen, Normandy. Caen was one of the main Allies objective during Operation Overlord, as it lay on the Orne River and the Caen canal, which were natural obstacles for the Allies advance. It was also located on an important road intersection, enabling the Germans to get resupplied with relative ease.
The British 3rd Infantry Division, under the command of Major General Thomas Rennie, was assigned the mission to capture the town. By July 20 the German outer defenses had been breached as the British armored divisions had advanced 6 miles.
By August 6, after having suffered heavy casualties, Caen was in British hands.
