The piece attached herein was translated from it's original German by Allied intelligence, read widely by the Allied General Staff and later printed in booklet form for a class at the U.S. Army Military Academy in 1945. This is the German Army assessment of the D-Day invasion; the report originated in the offices of Field Marshal von Rundstedt (1875 - 1953) and served to document the official German reaction to the Allied Operations in Normandy:

"The enemy had hoped to surprise us. He did not succeed...Thus the enemy airborne troops suffered heavy and in parts even extremely bloody losses, and were in most places annihilated in the course of the battle. They did not succeed in breaking-up the coastal defenses from the rear."
