The French-Canadians of Le Regiment de la Chaudiere supported by armor of the Fort Garry Horse, were tasked with taking the southern portion of Carpiquet. The village had been severely damaged by the pre-attack bombardment by not only the Canadian artillery, but also by fire support from the Royal Navy. The fight to clear Carpiquet and the defending German artillery would completely destroy the village.
Attacker: Canadian (3rd Infantry Division, Le Regiment de La Chaudiere)
Defender: German (SS) (Elements of 3./26, 1./26 and 4./26 12 SS Panzer Division "Hitlerjugend")
