Clip which describes fighting at Caen during WWII. Shot of map with city of Caen at focal point with flags of British and Germans. Shots of fighting: tanks, men with guns and binoculars, bombs dropping, planes overhead. Narrator says, “ Caen, the dust was diamonds. Every foot of ground was priceless. For by mid-most summer, Caen was the pivot of the war.” Shot of map again. More shots of fighting. Shots of city (Caen) largely in rubble.
