Totenkopf/Wiking in Normandy 1944

If these two crack SS Panzer divisions had been transfered to Normandy in June 1944 instead of the 9th&10th SS Panzer divisions how do you the battle for Normandy would have gone?Just a thought.

It would have been much bloodier but no other changes in my opinion. Weight of invasion was too much to counter even with couple better SS divisions.

It would have gone in exactly the same way. To the extent that there was a quality differential between T/W and H/Fr, it amounts to a factor so marginal that it's hardly even a drop in the ocean.
