La bataille d'Abbeville

From the Rhineland to Caen with the 13th Company of the “List” Regiment


An unpublished view of one of the most important battles of June 1940. The story is that of the movements of a horse-drawn infantry artillery company of the famous “List” Regiment which had distinguished itself in 1914 and was also the regiment of a certain Adolf Hitler.
Day after day, we follow this unit from the Rhineland to Normandy as it went through Saint Quentin, Amiens, le Havre, Rouen and Giberville, near Caen. Day after day, we share the life of these infantrymen, the difficult conditions of this journey which brought them to the heart of the Battle of Abbeville, during which the 57th Bavarian Infantry Division confronted the 4e DCR under Colonel de Gaulle…Facing hundreds of tanks, the 13th Company resisted for days until the final victory. Day after day, in a notebook, Corporal O. Bär wrote his sensitive and attentive descriptions, and intimate and realistic thoughts; humanist surprises about the combat situations, about going through deserted and ghostly regions. Like a war correspondent, this young corporal tells his story and his style gives this eyewitness account the value of a story. Published in 1940, this notebook, made up of texts and original photos by O. Bär and never published, is a rare and exceptional document
