Diverted the 21st Pz?![edit]

One source I just found states that 21st couldn't move on the beach head because ... they were on the East side of the River! And the bridges had already fallen into allied hands!
The 21st had been deployed to Ranville?! I've always wondered just how and why they hadn't played the role that was obviously there for them.
Perhaps they were on the E side of the river because of the attack on the Merville battery?!

Holger book may be a fake, Wergens quote should be deleted[edit]

There is no information on the Internet about "author" Holger Eckhertz that does not come from his self-published book "D-Day Through German Eyes." Bona fide historian Jonathan Gawneon believes the book to be a fake. Quote from "Second Lieutenant L.T.J. Wergens' should be deleted unless Eckhertz' work can be verified.
