German Defences in France 1940-1944

German source documents on German defences in France 1940-1944 and the signs of impending danger.

There is a complete copy of FM von Rundstedt's report on the defences and the divisions stationed in France in October 1943 and Hitler's Directive No. 51. It also covers Rommel and his arrival on the scene in France, together with the tactical aspects of coastal defence, estimates of enemy intentions, methods of defence available and the West Wall, and is completed with intelligence reports from Fremde Heere West (Foreign Armies West).
