Armoured Warrior is a work of fiction. It is, however, closely based on the experiences of units of the First Canadian Army in combat with German forces in the northern part of France during late August 1944. These operations have become known as the battle of the Falaise Gap. This was the climax of the campaign that had begun with the Allied invasion of the Normandy beaches on the French coast of the English Channel ten weeks before, on June 6, 1944.
