Books Info:

Fighting the Invasion free pdf In one of history s most violent battles, Allied troops gathered along the shores of southern England, preparing for the invasion of Hitler's Fortress Europe. Facing them, from the Pas de Calais to Brittany, were German troops, dug in, waiting and preparing for the inevitable confrontation. History is often told from the perspective of the victors and often times we do not hear the other side of the story. In this unique compilation David Isby selects a series of in-depth accounts written by German commanders present at D-Day. All of these accounts were written after the war under the commission of the US Army in an attempt to intricately chart the development of German strategy in the event of future wars and invasions. These once private accounts detail everything from the planning stage of the invasion, to the uncertain waiting, and finally the ordeal of D-Day itselfthe reactions to the first reports of troop landings, and a blow-by-blow account of the fighting. "Fighting the Invasion" paints a superb picture of D-Day from the German perspective, bringing home the entire experience from the initial waiting to the bitter fighting on the beaches and running battles in Normandy villages."
