I know what it is, I probably should have left out the top of the hill on the cassino picture it was rather easy.

Lamb, that would be Saint-Lô. The bocaged fields around the urban area gave it away.


Here's the next one:

I had it in my challenge it's le Menils Patry! Canadians got whiped out in front!

On the afternoon of Sunday 11 June, 'B' Squadron of the 1st Hussars suffered heavy losses following an abortive attack with The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada on the hamlet of Le Mesnil Patry, North-West of Caen. The attack was due to be launched in the early hours of 12 June but the information was received early on 11 June that the attack had been advanced so the Canadian forces set off at 2:30 PM.[5][6] The Canadian column advanced with B Squadron of the 1st Hussars in the lead, with men of D Company of the Queen's Own Rifles riding on the 1st Hussars's tanks.[6] Panzergrenadiers and tanks of the 12th SS Panzer Division were able to ambush the tanks of 'B' Squadron in a grain field near Le Mesnil Patry in part due to intelligence gleaned from the Hussars' radio traffic after capturing wireless codes from a destroyed Canadian tank on 9 June. After the ambush started men were flung from the tanks that they were riding as the tanks caught fire or exploded, destroying twenty.[7] The commander of the section of the Queen's Own Rifles (Major Elliot Dalton) was wounded in the leg by mortar fire.[7] The commander of the lead element of the Hussars, Lieutenant Colonel Colwell, ordered that the lead element retreat but the order was not heard. Using Panzerfausts, Panzerschrecks and anti-tank guns, the German forces were able to destroy 51 Shermans (all but two of their tanks) and inflict 61 killed or missing, 2 wounded and 11 captured on the vanguard of the 1st Hussars. All of the squadron's officers and all but three of their non-commissioned officers were lost in the fighting. The Queen's Own Rifles suffered 55 killed, 33 wounded and 11 taken prisoner during the attack.[6] An English newspaper called it the modern equivalent of the Charge of the Light Brigade.[7]

Thats Breskens in the Netherlands. Bombed september 1944 during operation switchback. Resulting in 200 casualties and much more wounded.
The direction of the coast somewhat northern give me directions to seek. The countryside looks to clean and green for sicily.

The northern facing harbor threw me off as well, and it's interesting that you mention Sicily since that's where I looked after verifying that it was not Calais.

The next map looks like the Ardennes again, but your comment about it not being a battle site has me curious!

It is in the Ardennes. I looked all over the Mediterranean for that last one.
