Tiger ‘332’ from schwere SS-Panzer-Abteilung 101 is seen at Elbeuf town situated by the banks of the Seine at the end of August 1944. Because of the lack of crossing capacity, the tank had to be blown up. The officers are from the Leibstandarte Division, which broke out of Falaise encirclement en masse the days before, and crossed the Seine near Elbeuf.
