Publisher's Summary

The first book of D Day Through German Eyes has fascinated listeners around the world with its insight into the German experience of June 6, 1944. Now, book 2 contains a completely different set of astonishing German testimonies from the same archive.
These newly translated eyewitness statements by German veterans show the defenders to be determined but psychologically insecure, often deluded in their thinking, and all too human in their shock at the onslaught they faced. 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.

A very powerful alternative view

This and it's companion volume paint a vivid and quite alternative view of one of the most pivotal events in modern European history. Such works are doubly important as so often history gets to be written by the victors alone. Here are the voices of men on the ground who, by and large, thought they were doing the right thing. The power and merciless nature of the Allied invasion comes across relentlessly.

Facinating

Absolutely facinating insight into the German psyche regarding their attitude to Europe and their occupation of France in particular.

A must listen too.

It always good to hear about how things were from the other side to understand more fully the whole situation and what the common Soldier went through.

More of the same... which is a good thing

If you enjoyed the first book, you will also enjoy this one. The format is the same and the interviews are as captivating, with different aspects expanding nicely on the revelations of the first book.

it is not necessary to have listened to the first book first, however you might as well if you haven't already.
