German help on DDay info
I have often wondered about the mixed feelings of German soldiers in France after DDay. On the one hand you want to defend your homeland but on the other hand you know happened on the Eastern Front and how the Russians were going to take revenge. It must have been tempting to allow the Allies an easy road so they would take Germany before the Russians. I have seen an American GI say there was a lot of combat between German Units, ones who wanted to surrender and those who were fanatics. I know there were mistakes by Hitler in not releasing reserves but I wonder if other decisions by senior Germans deliberately helped the allies.
