The 29th Infantry Division secured ground between major Commonwealth efforts to seize Caen and major American efforts to seize Cherbourg.
Although in an economy of force role, it pinned the Germans down with frequent aggressive patrols and with further limited 28 attacks.
The Germans responded with patrols and counterattacks of their own.
On balance, the Germans could less well afford the losses of manpower and equipment resulting from this continuing attrition as the fighting progressed.
The 29th Infantry Division in particular improved upon its integration of infantry maneuver and artillery fire power during this period.
As American patrols identified German positions, they subjected them to well-aimed American artillery fire.
The active patrolling afforded the division the opportunity to effectively integrate replacements as well.
