Same Event, Different Truths

I came across this absolutely fascinating film footage of the D-Day Invasion on June 6, 1944. What's different about it though is that it's from the German perspective!
So here we have an event that (most?) everyone in North America would consider to be a righteous one, whose goal was to give freedom back to hundreds of millions of Western Europeans. But the perspective of German citizens watching this in 1944 must have been quite different!

Disclaimer: In no way, shape, or form am I making any assertion or implication that either of the two U.S. political parties in 2008 represents the Germans 64 years ago!
