Following the stunning success of the Blitzkrieg, the German forces had created a corridor through the Allied armies in France dividing them into two halves. On the southern flank the Allies planned to counter attack forces holding bridgeheads across the Somme River. These troops included the lightly armoured tanks of the 1st British Armoured Division, French artillery and infantry support was promised to assist their endeavour.
Due to a lack of communication between the Allies, including a dispatch rider being killed, the 10th Hussars attacked unsupported towards the village of Huppy. There they clashed with the dug in troops of 2nd Motorised Division.
