Overview
-

Barely two months after leaving the Eastern Front, Michael Wittmann and the Leibstandarte found themselves in Normandy facing the Allied invasion in June 1944. A week after D-Day, Wittmann achieved his greatest success, single-handedly destroying more than a dozen British tanks and preventing an enemy breakthrough near Villers Bocage. He was killed several months later while leading a Tiger battalion against an Allied assault. The Leibstandarte went on to fight at the Battle of the Bulge and in Hungary and Austria before surrendering in May 1945.
