The village of Fontaine-Notre-Dame, close to Cambrai and to the Bourlon hill, two of the objectives for the British offensive, was bitterly fought over by the opposing armies throughout the battle. Taken by the tanks on 21st November 1917, it was retaken the next day. The fighting over the following days was particularly dramatic for the tanks, which were annihilated by German anti-aircraft artillery. The village was not liberated until the end of the war.
