Description: Fearing a German armoured offensive southwest of Caen, the British high command decided to bomb the important crossroads at Aunay-sur-Odon, in order to bar the Panzersí route.

In the early hours of June 12th, two waves of aircraft raked the high street and totally destroyed the centre of the village, killing around a hundred inhabitants.

n the night of June 14th-15th, the rest of Aunay-sur-Odon was reduced to rubble by a second and even more terrible bombardment. Nothing was left standing, except for the dangerously unstable church tower, which had to be demolished for safetyís sake. Fifty more names were added to the death toll which was already long for a commune of just 1,800 inhabitants.
