I'm reading Beevor's account of the Battle for Normandy ('D-Day') and he states (I seem to recall) that despite the Allied tankers' fear of Tigers, Panthers etc. the 88 took out many more Allied tanks than all the German armour put together.
I've read several first hand accounts of Tank crews in Normandy and time and again they mention 88's as being the real threat. Their relatively low profile, mobility and rate of fire seemed to make them particuarly good weapons for fighting in the Bocage.
Thank you for leaving a comment. I always try to reply as soon as I can, so why not pop back later and continue the conversation. In the meantime, keep rolling high!
