Dan Weakley wrote:You really should study the deception of the Allies before the invasion. It was a masterful ruse and quite fascinating. Hitler still thought the Normandy landing merely a diversion, he instead thought the landings would take place at the narrowest point in the Channel.
It was quite an elaborate deception and was instrumental in the successs of the D-Day landings.

Also When Hitler did have the chance to move troops and panzers to the front he moved the King Tigers. He should have moved the Tigers, which were faster and more maneuverable, then the King Tigers. Since he didn't do this when the tanks ran out of gas the troops had to destroy them. He should have left the King Tigers back and let the Tigers go to the front.
