Just got through reading Ian Daglish's "Goodwood" published in 2005. One thing in it was quite intriging. He stated that other than von Luck's account, there is no corroborating evidence that this famous episode actually happened. He even shows aerial recon shots taken during the battle and there is no sign of the guns or their towing vehicles. Also, no German records could be found (especially Luftwaffe flak) to substantiate the story. Daglish did admit there were quite a few Brit tanks knocked out in front of Cagny but feels that they may have been destroyed by Becker's SP-AT guns. For the few, if any, who haven't read or viewed something about this episode, von Luck was commanding the 125 Panzergrenadierregiment battle group of 21st Panzer Div. On coming back from leave in Paris he found his HQ in chaos with reports of extremely heavy aerial and arty bombardment. Motoring forward in a Mk IV to find out what was going on, he got to Cagny only to find Brit tanks surging forward past Cagny. He stated he found a Luftwaffe heavy flak battery in Cagny with its barrels pointing to the sky. The battery commander refused von Luck's order to fire against the enemy tanks saying his job was to fight bombers. Von Luck then supposedly pulled his pistol and told the Luftwaffe officer that he could either die now or earn himself a high medal. The Luftwaffe officer (no name has been found) figured that he really DID want to fight tanks and ordered his men to start shooting at the tanks. They knocked out 30-40 and slowed the advance enough so that von Luck and others could cobble together a defensive front and thus defeat GOODWOOD. I always thought this was true, now I'm not so sure. Anyone have any facts or ideas on this?
