Action at Villers-Bocage

Its 1944 and one of the only roads leading North-South towards Caen. The town of Villers Bocage was held by Major Ray Williams with his force from Company B of the 1/7th Queens Royals and supported by Captain Theodore "Teddy" Jones and his 4th County of London Yeomanry. The German counter-attack came in to the town led by Major Paul Von Luck with elements of 130 Panzer Regiment and support by Heir Richard Von Kerr of 101st SS Panzer Company.

The British put up tough resistance as the Town was decimated by Gun, Artillery and automatic machine gun fire.

In the end the Tigers were too much and the British withdraw that night.
