Germans in Normandy by Richard Hargreaves

Book Description

This title describes the Normandy campaign from the German perspective. It covers D-Day, Villers-Bocage, Cherbourg, St Lo, Caen, Avranches, and other battles in hedgerow country. Erwin Rommel, Michael Wittmann, and Kurt Meyer appear in this title. Drawing on letters, diaries, firsthand accounts, and official documents, "The Germans in Normandy" paints a vivid and frequently horrific picture of life for the men who held Hitler's vaunted Atlantic Wall when the Allies invaded France in June 1944 and who put up a bitter but ultimately hopeless defence throughout that summer. These are the German soldiers who manned the pillboxes on Omaha Beach, fired the machine guns across farmfields, and commanded the Tiger tanks. To read about the war from their point of view is sobering and informative.
