Operation Charnwood was a Second World War Anglo-Canadian offensive that took place from 8-9 July 1944, during the Battle of Normandy.

The operation was intended to at least partially capture the German-occupied French city of Caen (French pronunciation: ), which was an important Allied objective during the opening stages of Operation Overlord. It was also hoped that the attack would pre-empt the transfer of German armoured units from the Anglo-Canadian sector to the lightly screened American sector, where a major US offensive was being planned.

The British and Canadians advanced on a broad front and by the evening of the second day had taken Caen up to the Orne and Odon rivers.
