sorry it took that long, but finally found it in some my books:

"Die Truppe kämpft allerorts heldenmütig, jedoch der ungleiche
Kampf neigt dem Ende entgegen
"

page 372, Friedrich Georgs´s "Verrat in der Normandie"

it´s from a Rommel´s teletype to Hitler dating July 15, 1944

Edit: Just figured it´s also available as PDF download in the net. Not sure if it´s legal but here´s the link:

Hi Falaise

Be a little careful refering to this book. I read only the first few pages and found it propagates a sort of disgusting „Dolchstoss-Legende“ (just like in WW1). Along the lines “Without German help, the Yanks would not have won in the Normandy.“

But then, the French never lost at Waterloo, did they?🤓

No, seriously, the Rommel citation may be true, but this „pamphlet“ is nothing to refer too.
