* The senior commander was Field Marshall Rommel, but he had returned to Germany for his wife's birthday. Many of the next tier of generals had also left Normandy for war games.

* Field Marshal Gerd Von Rundstedt was officially in charge of the Western Front (or the anticipated Western Front), but Rommel was in charge of all invasion defense.
