This new paperback edition contains Book One and Book Two of this series, revealing the hidden side of D Day which has fascinated readers around the world.Almost all accounts of D Day are told from the Allied perspective. But what was it like to be a German soldier in the bunkers of the Normandy coast, facing the onslaught of the mightiest invasion in history? 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? This book sheds fascinating light on these questions, bringing together statements made by German survivors after the war, when time had allowed them to reflect on their state of mind, their actions and their choices of June 6th. We see a perspective of D Day which deserves to be added to the historical record, in which ordinary German troops struggled to make sense of what was facing them, and emerged stunned at the weaponry and sheer determination of the Allied troops. Above all, we now have the unheard human voices of the individual German soldiers - the men who are so often portrayed as a faceless mass.… (mais)

Five accounts by German soldiers stationed in Normandy.

Most interesting to me was not the fighting but the information problem — at what point did they become aware it was an invasion and not merely a Dieppe-style raid. Also, pretty telling when they saw the massive assembled logistics after the invasion, and were amazed to see zero horses (since the allies were completely mechanized with essentially limitless fuel.)

Pretty much apolitical, with the one obvious thing being that they thought they were right, and fighting at that point of the war to defend Europe/pan-europeanism/etc. At one point when being overrun one of their companions asked “maybe we shouldn’t have started this war”, though.

Over the past 10 months, I have been reading various stories about the men from the Band of Brothers series. With D DAY Through German Eyes - The Hidden Story of June 6th 1944 by Holger Eckhertz, I had an opportunity to see the Normandy invasion from a different perspective. It is a perspective that is not often shared. This was quite a fascinating glimpse into another part of that history. Read more ( )

This book gave me a different view of D-Day. I've read several books on the subject, all written by the victors. This book illustrated what it was like to be the attacked, not the attacker. I felt that the men who were interviewed were thoughtful and respectful of the Allies. Much of this, I believe was because 10 years had passed since the day in question so that they had been able to put distance and reason between their anger and speak with less ire. It was interesting to see that the soldiers considered their actions to be protecting France, when in fact Germany had suppressed, imprisoned, and murdered its populace. It was also clear that the propaganda was very effective in keeping the truth away from the soldiers of how dire the straights were for Germany in materiel, economics, food, etc. ( )

Hard hitting personal stories of Germans in Normandy on June 6th. Horrifying for both sides. ( )

This is a short ebook. Five German soldiers, one from each of the D-Day beaches, tell their stories of D-Day. Their stories are bloodier than those in books of Allied D-Day reminiscences - these soldiers clearly survived against the odds, as their stories made clear.
