Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The XLVII Panzer Corps (47th Panzer Korps) was a Panzer Corps formed by Field Marshal Günther von Kluge during the Battle of Normandy for Operation Lüttich. Initially comprising two Panzer Divisions of the Waffen-SS and two other Armoured Divisions, the unit would see action throughout the Normandy Campaign. A Panzer Corps was a military formation type in the German Wehrmacht during World War II. The name was introduced in 1942, when the motorised corps were renamed to panzer corps. Panzer corps were created throughout the war, and existed in all service arms of the Wehrmacht except the Navy. Those renamed from ordinary motorised corps retained their numbering.

Operation Lüttich was a codename given to a German counterattack during the Battle of Normandy, which took place around the American positions near Mortain from 7 August to 13 August, 1944. (Lüttich is the German name for the city of Liège in Belgium, where the Germans had won a victory in the early days of August, 1914, during the First World War.) The offensive is also referred to in American and British histories of the Battle of Normandy simply as the Mortain counter-offensive. The assault was ordered by Adolf Hitler, to eliminate the gains made by the First United States Army during Operation Cobra and the subsequent weeks, and by reaching the coast in the region of Avranches at the base of the Cotentin peninsula, cut off the units of the Third United States Army which had advanced into Brittany.
