Anti-Armor Defense Data Study for Mortain


Recommended Posts

Elsewhere, I provided the information for a later part of the study, Volume 3, which was about U.S. Anti-Tank Defense at Dom Butgenbach, q.v., Belgium, December 1944. This is the link to to the prior volume, whose investigation subject is Mortain. Mortain has time and again been one of JasonC's go to case studies, so many should find this of interest, what with the U.S. forces defending against no less than four PDs in a corps level counterattack following the St. Lo breakout. Mortain happens to be an action in which the towed ATGs had a prominent--and altogether too exciting--role.

Historian Martin Blumenson, himself an author of several of the Army Green books, wrote this nice overview of a very hairy battle.
