Notes:
Everyone is familiar with the story of D-Day and the triumphal liberation of France by the Allies - a barbaric enemy was defeated by Allied ingenuity, courage and overwhelming military force, helped by dreadful German command errors and the terrible state of Wehrmacht forces in the West - but is this all true? The Wehrmacht was hugely experienced, equipped with some of the best weaponry of the war and was holding its own in Italy and Russia at the time. Berlin knew the invasion was coming and had had years to prepare for it. So how did the Germans view the impending invasion and campaign, did they feel ready, just what forces did they have and could they have done better? In the end they lost, and the majority of these unsung leaders ended up killed, wounded or captured in the fighting. This book is written from the 'other side' and told as much through the words of the veterans as from standard histories.
