Just a quick note on the LW 16 Feld Div. It was in bad shape before Goodwood. It appears that the division was also hit hard in the previous Operation Charnwood actions in which to British and Canadians captured all of Caen on the other side of the Orne. One source indicated that they had lost 50% of their strength in that operation. If you add the fact that they had just been subject to a major bombing by allied heavy bombers and the overall low quality of their officers and NCO's its not a surprise that they folded up so quickly.
