9783932922237: WN 62: A German Soldier's Memories of the Defence of Omaha Beach, Normandy, June 6, 1944

Heinrich Severloh's moving autobiography and service memoir describes the greatest amphibious landing-operation in history, which on D-Day marked the beginning of the decisive campaign of the Second World War. When in the dawn of June 6, 1944, the western Allies opened their offensive against the Atlantic Wall on the coast of Normandy, with 7,000 ships and 13,000 airplanes, Severloh, the machine-gunner who became the German most feared by the Americans, was posted at Strongpoint WN62. He fired at the G.I.'s on the beach with his machine gun and rifle for nine long hours - more than 2.000 of them were taken down. In a moving and unsparing account, Heinrich Severloh describes the dramatic hours during which 34,000 G.I.'s landed in his sector of what later was called "Bloody Omaha", and met with the hard-fought resistance of only 300 German soldiers. Severloh the young farmer's son from the Lüneburg heath, survived a firestorm, as bizarre as it was terrible, that stamped the rest of his life.
