Oddly enough I am struggling with this question as the only answer I can think of is that they let them get away, the Germans put very little effort into chasing the withdrawing forces.

I however assume you are asking something more specific.

Well you know what they say "Great minds think alike" of course they also say "Fools rarely differ" so I am open for suggestions.

When Captain and Battalion Commander of the 3rd Infantry Regiment 572 Richard Schnosenberg was interviewed, he stated the following:

There was a gesture, this was possible in 1942. Once we had dealt with the wounded we had to get rid of the dead. So we dug huge graves to bury them in.

We held a requiem service for them two or three days after the battle. On the afternoon of that day at about 3 Oclock we got a radio message from the English, asking if they could drop some men off to attend the service. We told them they could send an unarmed Red Cross craft which we would intercept and escort by German fighters as far as Dieppe. They could then drop the men and turn back.

I have to mention the remarkable fact that there was no disturbance from the English Air Force during the requiem service or the subsequent service fir the German dead.

There was never a genius without a tincture of madness.
