Abstract:

In late 1943, the British Army ordered the veteran 7th Armored, 51st (Highland) and 50th (Northumbrian) Divisions to return to Great Britain to provide combat experienced troops for the D-Day invasion of northwest Europe. On D-Day, the 50th Division achieved nearly all of its objectives. But by mid-June, the 50th held positions only a few miles beyond its final D-Day positions. The apparent failure of this veteran division in later operations led many senior leaders to believe that veteran divisions had become a liability. This thesis evaluates the performance of the 50th Division in Normandy by examining the following: the 50th's prior combat experiences in France, North Africa, and Sicily; the 50th's overall readiness for war during the period before the invasion, including pre-invasion training; and the performance of the 50th Division in specific combat engagements in Normandy.
