Operation Goodwood took place between 18-19 July 1944 with units of the British VIII Corps. The operation was planned to open up the country to the east of Caen which would then achieve a breakout from the bridgehead where Allied forces were being held up and capture Caen. Advances were made but they did not achieve the final objectives.
