On August 8, 1944, Michael Wittmann was near Cintheaux, between Caen and Falaise in a battle with a group of 5 Sherman Firefly tanks. Ultimately, the overpowering was too great and he fell in the fight, where he had previously destroyed 2 of the enemy tanks and shot a non-combatant. None of Wittmann's crew survived, and together with her, he was buried in a village cemetery in Hamlet of Gaumesnil. A week later, the Allies closed the Kessel of Falaise and established the German troops there.
