Operation Cobra was delayed several times by bad weather and began on July 25, 1944, with a concentrated aerial bombardment of thousands of Allied aircraft. Supporting offensives had drawn most of the German armored reserves into the British and Canadian sectors and, combined with the general lack of men and equipment available to the Germans, it was impossible for them to form successive lines of defense. Units of U.S. VII Corps led the initial assault of two divisions, while other corps of the First U.S. Army made supporting attacks to keep German units in place. Progress was slow on the first day, but resistance began to crumble as the defensive crust was broken. By July 27, most organized resistance had been overcome and the VII andVIII Corps advanced rapidly and isolated the Cotentin Peninsula and with it the town of Coutances.
