D-Day: ‘We didn’t want to fight’

Paul Golz was 18 when he was drafted into the German Army in 1943.

He was on watch during the morning of the D-Day landings and saw the first flares hit the beach.

He was captured by the Allies and kept as a prisoner until the end of World War Two.

He tells BBC Scotland’s The Nine that he was happy the invasion was a success.
