By Jonathon Trigg

See one of the most iconic battle of WW2 from the lesser-told side. 

Previous histories have focused on the clash of the generals ; the battle between 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.

Written from the other side and told as much through the words of the veterans as from standard histories, this book is a revelation.
