Great action with the 17. SS Panzergrenadier Division Götz von Berlichingen and the paratroopers from Fallschirmjäger-Regiment 6 in the area of Carentan, Normandy against US forces in mid-June 1944. Both Götz von Berlichingen Division and Fallschirmjäger-Regiment 6 remained in this sector for the remainder of June and most of July, struggling valiantly to hold back the Americans.
