French Text

In his moving autobiography, Heinrich Severloh recounts the largest amphibious landing operation in history. Severloh describes when the Allies, on D-Day, June 6, 1944, launched their dawn offensive on the Normandy coast against the Atlantic Wall with 7,000 ships and 13,000 aircraft. Severloh was positioned in his battle station on the fulcrum of 62 WN (Widerstandsnest 62), and for nine hours he fired his gun on the GI's who were on the beach –over 2,000 of them will not return.

In a ruthless and vividly told account, Severloh describes these dramatic hours during which 34,000 GIs landed in the sector called "Bloody Omaha,” and who collided with only 350 German soldiers, defending their posts defended fiercely. Severloh survived the deluge of fire during these events that were both terrifying and chaotic; memories of which would remain with him for the rest of his life. A large number of publications, as well as articles and television programs, have appeared throughout the years thanks to war historians, and have been immortalized under the name of Hein Severloh. Until the publication of this sad confession, the Americans did not know the name of the person who transformed their landing at Normandy into the horrific disaster that it was.

In collaboration with Helmut Freiherr von Keusgen , a specialist in military history, WN62 provides not only an exciting and highly detailed description of the Normandy landing and events, but also a new perspective about the events of that tragic day. The relationship between the Germans and French are thus presented in a different light. Heinrich Severloh tells the unvarnished truth with poignancy, clearing the slate of once held prejudices.

Book Description Editions Heimdal, France, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: French. Brand new Book. Heinrich Severloh, dans son emouvant recit autobiographique, raconte la plus grande operation du debarquement amphibie de toute l'histoire, lorsque les Allies, au Jour-J, le 6 juin 1944, lancerent a l'aube devant le cote normande leur offensive contre le Mur de l'Atlantique avec 7 000 navires et 13 000 avions. A son poste de combat, sur le point d'appui WN 62 (Widerstandnest 62).Pendant neuf heures, il fit feu de sa mitrailleuse et de son fusil sur les GI's qui se trouvaient sur la plage (plus de 2 000 d'entre eux ne se releveront pas). D'une maniere impitoyable et saisissante, Severloh decrit ces heures dramatiques au cours desquelles, dans son secteur baptise Omaha la Sanglante, debarquerent 34 000 GI's se heurtant a seulement 350 soldats allemands qui se defendirent avec acharnement. Severloh survecut a ce deluge de feu dans des circonstances aussi effrayantes que mouvementees, devant le marquer pour le reste de sa vie. Un grand nombre de publications dues a des historiens de guerre, ainsi que des articles de presse et des emissions televisees l'ont immortalise sous le nom de Hein Severloh. Jusqu'a la parution de cette triste confession, les Americains ne connaissaient pas le nom de celui qui fit de leur debarquement cette terrible catastrophe. Seller Inventory # AAJ9782840484264
