Only after listening to this did I learn that it is from Sprech Media , well known for other works that are considered fabrications and thus fiction. Various aspects of this book seemed contrived and I started to question its authenticity. Google Sprech Media and learn the facts.

I downloaded this purely as had read quite extensively about the allied version of the landings but never from a German perspective. It is broken down into five accounts, one for each of the beaches under the allied code names. The interviews take place 10 years after the landings and have been translated.
Each account is well detailed and gives the reader an insight into the equipment the Germans possessed, their thoughts and feelings at the time, and also how their thoughts have changes in the years since.
The chap who plays the German men is obviously very talented and speaks in a variety of German-accented English and makes their stories come to life.
Hugely interesting perspective and I would recommend to anyone who is fascinated about that particular point in history.

If you could sum up D DAY Through German Eyes in three words, what would they be?
Riveting, authentic, eye-opening
What did you like best about this story?
It's pacey and dramatic
What about P. J. Ochlan’s performance did you like?
The reader gave a solid and well angled performance. There narratives from at least six soldiers and he gave each distinct characteristics and nuances so you got a sense of each of their background and disposition from their voice. These people came alive again. The pace again seemed natural but never too slow. Really impressive. When the material is as good as this the reader becomes even more important.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, I listen when I drive
Any additional comments?

As the book's description states, often we are only aware of the allied's perspective of D-Day. This book gives a first-hand account of not only the state-of-mind of the German soldiers attempting to repel the landings, but also raw, gritty detail about their combat experiences facing overwhelming odds.
Well presented and well read. There is also a second book available with more interviews as well.
This book really opened my eyes to the first hand experiences of German soldiers at D Day landing.
An excellent book and well worth listening to.
