The "Corridor of the Death" is the bottleneck of the famous Falaise-Argentan pocket, where the German fighting forces will be destroyed by Allied power. The Germans will leave several thousand dead and 40,000 prisoners in the pocket, after half of them managed to break through. This book tells this hell.

The Battle of Mortain with incredible revelations: conspiritors of July 20th leading the counter-attack? The fights day by day with various testimonies and anecdotes, but also details never seen before on the engagement of panzer units in the Argentan area. An event book beautifully illustrated by an abundant iconography.
