In this exceptional book, the author, Helmut Konrad von Keusgen, a noted authority on D-Day, describes the most powerful of the German Strong Points (Widerstandsnest) in the Omaha Beach area, WN62. Omaha was where the largest tragedy of the U.S. landings of 6 June 1944 took place. Presenting a wealth of information, from many carefully verified sources, von Kuesgen reconstructs the history of WN62 from April 1942 to June 6, 1944, and particularly the daily lives of the German soldiers stationed there, as well as their relations with the local population. Produced with the assistance and cooperation of the last German veterans, this is an important contribution to the history of German troops during the Second World War. It is a rich work, full of information, typical of the author's style.
