The map shown below gives you an idea of the German main thrusts on S+3 as they attempt to break through the British defences and reach their strategic target of the Yorkshire and North Midland coalfields and the industrial Midlands. Meanwhile, the British IV and VII Corps along with the Guards Armoured Division from the strategic reserve are forming up for their own counter-attack. As ever, if you click on the map you should be able to zoom into it in order to read the detail. The Cawood Pocket can be seen developing above Selby and stretching towards Church Fenton. The Fridaythorpe Box has been crushed but the Holme-on-Spalding Moor Box is still holding out…just.
