    Good morning,

    I am building an interactive animation of the Battle of Normandy. You may access the animation which is under construction to follow progress. Select (click on) units from the 6th PARACHUTE DIVISION and the 3rd (Cdn) INFANTRY DIVISION to see how it works.

    These two divisions are 90% complete, now I would like to 'fill the gap'.

    You would be of great help to point me towards WAR DIARIES for units of the 3rd (British) Infantry Division and the 51st (Highland) Division for June through August:
    • 8th Inf Brigade
      1 Suffolk
    • 2 East Yorkshire

    Good afternoon,

    A couple weeks late, but I have finally finished outlining the division-level movements of all the Allied units during the Battle of Normandy, 1944 (save the 11th British Armoured Division). It took longer than planned because I rebuilt the database mid-stream to make it more flexible and powerful.

    I will continue to add more detailed information as I have time, and I am eager to get to the German units to complete the story.

    As always, I am happy to hear your thoughts, Erik
