Come down the travelators, exit Sainsbury's, turn right and follow the pedestrianised walkway to Crown Walk and turn right - and Coles will be right in front of you. One soldier couldn't get over the fact that the Allies had no horses or mules and that all their transports were mechanized meaning they had no fears of fuel shortages. To him this was incomprehensible but it also reinforced the propaganda that he had been fed that his enemy was a tool of the wealthy industrialists that were behind the Allies' opposition to the Reich.

Izlasīju grāmatu un tikai nejauši goodreads pamanīju minējumu, ka viss šis ir brutāls viltojums, ar ko nodarbojas konkrētais "autors" un "izdevniecība".Namely, it appears to be a very entertaining and convincing fraud - one that is perhaps still worth reading. Previous histories have focused on the 'clash of the generals'; the battle between von Runstedt and Eisenhower, Montgomery and Rommel, but on the German side in particular this was a battle that would be fought by divisional and regimental commanders; the 'German D-Day colonels' upon whom the real business of trying to defeat the invasion fell - it was they and their men, outnumbered and outgunned, who somehow held Normandy for ten whole weeks against the greatest seaborne invasion force ever assembled, and occasionally even came close to defeating it. What motivated the German defenders, what were their thought processes - and how did they fight from one strong point to another, among the dunes and fields, on that first cataclysmic day? Serena Williams tries to slip into denim Valentino skirt as a 'goal' five months after giving birth.

I really enjoyed reading this book,it gives you a different perspective on what happened on 6th June 1944.

They also talk about the mental state of the defending forces during the attack which ranged from the die-hard to those who wanted to surrender immediately. The ultimate Valentine's Day countdown - here are 10 romantic gestures to help sweep your partner off their feet! D Day Through German Eyes purports to feature never-before-heard interviews from veterans describing the Normandy landings in vivid detail.

Further, these were not high level officers but enlisted personnel or junior officers so we are not hearing much about strategy or tactics being employed by the German Army in preparation for an imminent invasion. He went to Normandy during the early part of 1944 and interviewed lots of soldiers manning the western defenses against any possibly invasions. Emmerdale star Richard Howard dies aged 79 after a 'short illness' as his agents pay tribute to the actor.

These unique interviews with German soldiers are a historical treasure trove of new insights, heart-stopping combat stories, and glimpses of wartime psychology that will absorb anyone with an interest in WW2. In one book, Comrades to the End, written by former commander Otto Weidinger, he actually argues that the Oradour-sur-Glane massacre was NOT the fault of the Germans at all, and that the soldiers responsible for the burning of the church and the civilians inside were actually Alsatians! This is a great little book about the viewpoint of the defending German troops on each Allied beach zone on D-Day.The horrors of the battle, the fear and also the compassion present on the German side are presented without varnish in these memories of ordinary soldiers, many of whom thought they were defending a united Europe and couldn't understand why the Allies wanted to kill them. In the case of "D-Day Through German Eyes", the interviews were supposedly conducted in 1950's, so that's 5 to 15 years after WW2. We have always seen or read about the greatest invasion of all from the allied perspective but I have always thought, imagine seeing it coming at you. Listen in as she takes six different people on a career change journey to help them figure out what work they would really love to do and create a plan of how to make that career change happen.
