Overview

Panzers in Normandy: General Hans Eberbach and the German Defense of France 1944 by Samuel W. Mitcham Jr.

The story of one of Germany's most renowned panzer commandersBased on Eberbach's own papers and writingsDetails on the armored opponent the Allies faced after D-DayIn July 1944, after fighting in most of Germany's campaigns--Poland, France in 1940, the Eastern Front--and then serving as Heinz Guderian's troubleshooter, General of Panzer Troops Hans Eberbach took command of Panzer Group West near the vital city of Caen in the British sector of Normandy. During the next two months, Eberbach led German tanks against the Allied onslaught in an ultimately vain attempt to stop the breakthrough into France's interior. Captured by the British at the end of August, Eberbach nevertheless secured himself a place among Germany's best panzer leaders.
