Assault Crossing

Crossing the Seine was an important step in the Allied advance into occupied France. This book tells the story of one of a number of assaults on the river in August 1944 that pitted one British division (the 43rd, Wessex) against one rather depleted German division. The action has since become something of a classic and a training example, but this analysis - first published in 1988 - shows that the operation in fact 'lumbered from crisis to crisis'.
