Is "D-Day Through German Eyes" by Holger Eckhertz a credible source?

According to The Times citating Giles Milton it isn’t, seeing it on the D-Day documentary was a very surprising.

As far as I’m concerned it is a fiction book.

I would love to see other historians opinions on the matter.

I agree. D-Day Through German Eyes is a great work of fiction. When I first read it, I felt that it was too good to be true…and it is.

It is a great works of fiction, the title also implies that the other historians look throug “Allied Eyes” which seems a common them with National Socialist revisionary history.

Sand and Steel from Caddick Adams which is a big source for the 24 hour documentary uses verified accounts from German and Allied Sources. (disclaimer I did send them the book but he us very good).
