PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - European Theater - Battle of Falaise Pocket. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Landing in Normandy on June 6, 1944, Allied troops fought their way ashore and spent the next several weeks working to consolidate their position and expand the beachhead.

On July 25, American forces launched Operation Cobra which shattered the German lines at St. Lo. Driving south and west, Bradley made rapid gains against increasingly light resistance. On August 1, the 3rd US Army, led by Lieutenant General George Patton, was activated while Bradley ascended to lead the newly-created 12th Army Group. Exploiting the breakthrough, Patton's men swept through Brittany before turning back east.

Tasked with rescuing the situation, the commander of Army Group B, Field Marshal Gunther von Kluge received orders from Adolf Hitler instructing him to mount a counterattack between Mortain and Avranches with the goal of reclaiming the western shore of the Cotentin Peninsula.

Casualty numbers for the Battle of Falaise Pocket are not known with certainty. Those that succeeded in escaping generally did so without the bulk of their heavy equipment. Re-armed and re-organized, these troops later faced the Allied advances in the Netherlands and Germany. Though a stunning victory for the Allies, debate quickly ensued regarding whether a greater number of Germans should have been trapped.
