The Battle of Verrières Ridge was part of the Battle of Normandy, in
northwestern France, during the Second World War. Two Canadian infantry
divisions—with additional support from the 2nd Canadian Armoured
Brigade—fought elements of three German SS Panzer divisions. The
battle began on 19 July 1944 as part of the British and Canadian
attempts to break out of Caen. The immediate Allied objective was
Verrières Ridge, a belt of high ground dominating the route from Caen
to Falaise, which was invested by battle-hardened German veterans. Over
six days, Canadian and British forces made repeated attempts to capture
the ridge, with heavy Allied casualties for little strategic gain. The
battle is remembered for its tactical and strategic miscalculations,
including a controversial attack by The Black Watch (Royal Highland
Regiment) of Canada on 25 July, the costliest single day for a Canadian
battalion since the 1942 Dieppe Raid.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
