The Kampfgruppe was based around the forwardmost units of the 2nd SS Panzer Division in Normandy and was seconded to the I SS Panzerkorps on 26 June 1944. It assaulted the positions of the British 49th (West Riding) Infantry Division around the village of Rauray between 28 June and 1 July 1944. Although it was ultimately unsuccessful in penetrating the British lines, it prevented the 49th Division from continuing to advance southwards from Rauray. The kampfgruppe subsequently returned to the operational command of the 2nd SS Panzer Division.
