The British historian Antony Beevor wrote. “The battle of Stalingrad was very much tougher and also a manageable territory is limited. In Normandy, but 2300 men per Division and month died, on average, alone on the German side. These were compared with the Front in the East, more than twice as many of the Fallen. This alone shows that the battle of Normandy has been much more violent than we have previously assumed.”
