1 - 2 weeks availability
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 First World War experiences, still compulsory reading for anyone with an interest in military strategy.
Born in 1888, Heinz Guderian served in World War One, 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 favour. 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.
