On the road Obergruppenfuhrer Josef "Sepp" Dietrich, commander of the SS Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler
regiment, the infantry spearheading the attack, was forced to abandon his car and hide in a ditch for several hours, caking himself in mud to escape.
One of the few interesting things it did, way back in 1988, was sign a twinning charter with the little French town of Wormhout, near Dunkerque, where the local Territorial Army unit was ambushed in 1940 by the notorious SS regiment Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler
According to the report, the killing was carried out by soldiers of the SS Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler
regiment that had been resisted so fiercely by the British defenders.
There was a fierce battle, during which Oberstgruppenfuhrer Josef 'Sepp' Dietrich, commander of the SS Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler
regiment, the infantry spearheading the attack, suffered the indignity of being forced to dive from his car into a ditch and lay for hours covered in mud.
