... three Panzers headed for Vaucelles, on the right bank of the Orne ... (from chapter 30 of Wingwatch)
The River Orne separates the centre of Caen from Vaucelles, the neighbourhood on the right bank. The bridges were the Allied bombers’ first targets as of 6 June 1944; only one was left intact. The longest chapter of Wingwatch is dedicated to the Battle of Caen, a key part of the Normandy Campaign.
