The Wehrmacht: The German Army of World War II, 1939-1945
The Wehrmacht analyses in detail the tactics of the armies, corps, and divisions of the German Army, such as the Blitzkrieg and the concept of mobile defence used so successfully during the latter stages of the war. The text also examines the reasons why the army was able to fight so long and so effectively under adverse strategic conditions: its adaptability for fighting, the superiority of much of its later equipment, and a basic capacity to improvise. The Wehrmacht provides new perspectives on why the German soldier of World War II was so good at fighting. All the different combat units of the army, such as panzer, panzergrenadier, infantry and cavalry divisions, and their battlefield role in all theatres of war are analysed in full.
