A chapter from the new book, D-Day Through German Eyes, by J Trigg.
D-Day Through German Eyes, How the Wehrmacht Lost France by J Trigg.
A reflection on how the war was lost by the Germans and won by the Allies from D-Day onwards.
Please note that some of the narrative in this episode is quite gory, more so than on previous episodes. If you don’t like imagery of blood, body parts and violent death scenes, I recommend you don’t listen on this occasion.
"There was a vast number of ships, absolutely vast. I can tell you that my throat went dry painfully dry, and my hands began to shake. I wasn't the only man to be affected that way, one of the very young lads began to retch as if he was going to be sick. It was the effect of pure fear."
