Blitzkreig in Their Own Words : First – Hand Accounts From German Soldiers 1939 – 1940 Hardcover by Alan Bance


The German campaigns in Poland and Western Europe of 1939-1940 ushered in a new era in warfare. The theory of the Blitzkrieg (Lightning War) developed by hitler’s forward-thinking generals was put to devastating effect, with fast moving tank attacks punching holes in the enemy’s front lines. Based on a German book published during World War II and never before translated, this book is a series of short, first hand accounts of these campaigns written by the Wehrmacht soldiers who took part in the fighting.
