Panzer Commanders of the Western Front: German Tank Generals in World War II (Stackpole Military History Series)

  • Detailed biographies of 5 panzer commanders
  • Describes what it's like to lead tank units in battle
  • Includes D-Day, Normandy, the campaign for France, the Battle of the Bulge, and the final battles in Germany

    Generals like Heinz Guderian have received most of the credit for devising and executing the German blitzkrieg, but without the lower-ranked commanders who led panzer corps, divisions, and regiments, the blitzkrieg that swept through France in 1940 could not have worked. Nor could the Germans have lasted as long as they did against the Allied invasion in Northwest Europe in 1944?45. In this book, based on original research, Samuel W. Mitcham Jr. profiles five of these panzer generals, chronicling their military careers and focusing on their leadership against the Americans and British in the West.
