D-Day - Germany Prepares to Defend French Occupation

By June of 1944, Germany had already occupied France for a number of years.  Correctly suspecting that Allied forces would attempt to liberate France with a cross-channel attack, Germany prepared formidable defenses.  

In this clip, German troops practice for the anticipated battle.  Included are interesting segments which reveal how German troops loaded their powerful guns.

From Die Deutsche Wochenschau (The German Weekly Newsreel), this video provides a look at events from Germany's point of view.
