Achtung-Panzer!: The Development of Tank Warfare (Cassell Military Paperbacks) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A rare, enlightening account by an outstanding soldier reveals his thoughts and theories on armored warfare and motorized land battle--which he then put in action to devastating effect during World War Two. Guderian's treatise on the importance of tank development, and on modern mechanized technology, shows exactly why the Germans dominated land warfare in the early stage of the fighting.

Synopsis:

Published in 1937, this work pushed forward the evolution of land warfare and was responsible for German armoured supremacy in the early years of World War II. Guderian argued, quite clearly, how vital the proper use of tanks and armoured vehicles would be in the conduct of a future war.

Synopsis:

Panzer attack was the secret of Hitler's early land successes. The man behind the strategy, and in command of the tanks, was Guderian. This is his manual of attack. Based on Guderian's own  World War I experiences, this is still compulsory reading for anyone with an interest in military strategy.

About the Author

Heinz Guderian served in World War I, came to Hitler's attention in 1935, was made corps commander of Panzer troops and promoted to General in 1938. His tanks were greatly successful in the invasions of Poland and France and, perceived as pro-Nazi, Guderian was much in favor. However, when the Russian invasion failed in the winter of 1941, Guderian was forced to resign, not to regain his position until 1944, when the war was all but lost. He died in Bavaria in 1954.
