Death of a Battlegroup
Worthington Force at Point 140

by Chris Johnson


The following is an unpublished article about one battle in the Normandy fighting in which a battlegroup of armour and infantry of 4th Canadian Armoured Division became lost in the heat and confusion of an advance during hours of darkness. Subsequently, it would suffer utter destruction at the hands of the tanks and panzer grenadiers of 12. SS-Panzerdivision Hitlerjugend and Schwere SS-Panzer Abteilung 101.
