@dam , yes. There was also a difference of opinion between Rommel and Von Runstedt, one wanted to re-enforce at the beach and try and keep the allies there, the other felt that allowing them in land would put the advantage in their hands by utilising the 'hedgerows' and the cover they provided for a defending force.

would love to hear the german version of d day landings , im not a nazi supporter but only the victors tales are told
We visited a German cemetery during our trip and one thing that strikes you exactly as it did in the British and American ones we visited is all the graves contained young men, many still teenagers and very few over 25. There were very few "victors" on D day it's self just a generation of young men lives wasted because of politicians, there would not be a quarter of wars if the ones that cause them were made to fight between themselves first.
