Berlin knew the D-Day invasion was coming, so how did the Germans view the impending invasion and campaign? Previous histories have focused on the "clash of the generals" but this battle 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 who somehow held Normandy for 10 whole weeks. Their men included Waffen-SS stormtroopers through to bewildered teenagers, old men, "recycled" invalids, and even anti-communist Eastern legions. Told through the words of the veterans.
