Size: 12 Mb
In May 1944 German Army Group B, headquartered in France, requested weekly reports from its commanders. These accounts included assessments of the general situation, estimates of the Allies situation, casualty figures, equipment losses, and descriptions of resistance activities. Commanded successively by Erwin Rommel, GÃ¼nther von Kluge, and Walter Model, Army Group B bore the brunt of the Allied assault--D-Day, the Normandy campaign, and Operation Market-Garden--and these reports reveal what the German Army was thinking as it confronted the invasion.
