Summary
1944 bore witness to the fifth year of World War II. As the Wehrmacht retreated, Germans still had hope. If the men of the Western Front could repulse the great invasion, dozens of units including panzer divisions, SS regiments, and paratrooper formations would arrive to thwart the Red advance. Everything depended on the Western Front's warlords. Defenders of Fortress Europe introduces men who had once believed they would conquer the world. By 1944, they were trying to throw the Allies back into the sea or just check them before they could reach Germany. The Fatherland's defense was in the hands of Nazis, non-Nazis, and anti-Nazis; professional soldiers and professional troublemakers; heroes, murderers, and war criminals; the efficient geniuses and the incompetent; famous, infamous, and the unknown; soldiers, sailors, SS men, and air force officers - all men who fought out of fanaticism, courage, personal ambition, a sense of honor, duty, love of country, misplaced patriotism, or habit--Publisher's description
