The Attack on Panzer Group West’s headquarters at La Caine in Normandy was a successful airstrike by the RAF’s Second Tactical Air Force. The raid took place on 10 June 1944 and knocked out German control of its armour. The attack resulted in the wounding of the Panzer group commander General Leo Geyr von Schweppenburg, the breakdown of German communications and the withdrawal of the HQ to Paris.
