Summary
In one of history's most violent battles, Allied troops gathered along the shores of southern England, preparing for the invasion of Hitler's Fortress Europe. Facing them--from the Pas de Calais to Brittany--were German troops, dug in, waiting and preparing for the inevitable confrontation. History is often told from the perspective of the victors and oftentimes we do not hear the other side of the story. In this unique compilation, David Isby selects a series of in-depth accounts written by German commanders present at D-Day. All of these accounts were written after the war under the commission of the US Army in an attempt to intricately chart the development of German strategy in the event of future wars and invasions. These once private accounts detail everything from the planning stage of the invasion, to the uncertain waiting, and finally to the ordeal of D-Day itself--the reactions to the first reports of troop landings and a blow-by-blow account of the battle. Fighting the Invasion paints a vivid picture of D-Day from the German perspective, bringing home the entire experience from the initial waiting to the bitter fighting on the beaches and in running battles in Normandy villages. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home
