Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

D-Day through German eyes..

#1 Post by indy1919a4 » Fri May 03, 2019 6:25 pm

Came across 2 really fantastic books. The books originate from a bunch of never published 1955 interviews. The Authors
Grandfather was a Correspondent for the German propaganda magazines Die Wehrmacht and Signal. He visited the Atlantic wall in May of 1944 and then in 1955.
He got in touch with Germans who served on the Wall. The interviews tell what those guys saw on that day. What is real nice is you get a real feeling of confidentiality in these interviews. These guys trusted & really opened up to the interviewer. One really gets a feeling that these guys are truly telling about how they fought and why they fought and they leave the bark on the tree as they do it.

A real time capsule told by people who saw the crap come at them.. Some of the survival stories are unreal. Many times as I was listening, even though you know the guy lives through it, you do not think he can.

Thanks Indy

It has inspired me to do research on my Grand Fathers war records.

One of them was a veteran of Stalingrad

If you ever get the chance and desire to share I would be interested in hearing.. The Russian front is just one of those insane no holds barred struggles and if that was not enough it was colder then 2 hells..

Yeah, thanks for posting. I've been listening on and off the last couple of days. It sure beats what's on T.V.
