Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Brigade along with the 129th Infantry Brigade and 130th Infantry Brigade formed the 43rd (Wessex) Infantry Division. In World War II it was organised as an infantry division and fought in Normandy, where it faced off against the German 9th SS Panzer Division at Hill 112, in July. It, along with the rest of the Division, were the first British units to cross the Seine river, with an assault crossing at the French town of Vernon opposed by the German 49th Infantry Division (see 'Assault Crossing, The River Seine 1944' by Ken Ford). This enabled the armour of XXX Corps under Gen. Brian Horrocks to thrust across northern France into Belgium.show more
