By Heinz Guderian
Published in 1937, the result of 15 years of careful study since Guderian's days on the German General Staff in the First World War, Achtung Panzer! argues how vital the proper use of tanks and supporting armoured vehicles would be in the conduct of a future war.
When that war came, just two years later, he proved it, leading his Panzers with distinction in the Polish, French and Russian campaigns. Panzer warfare had come of age, exactly as he had forecast.This first English translation of Heinz Guderian's classic book - used as a textbook by Panzer officers in the war - has an introduction and extensive background notes by the modern English historian Paul Harris.
Arrived really quickly along with some Top Trumps for my son. It's very interesting and at £2.99, excellent value.
I only bought this books because it was on sale. But when started to read it, I couldn't put it down. It is actually really interesting book.
Made a great birthday present for my buddy who is a WWII enthusiast
Tank museum services as brilliant as ever
I can only refer the reader to the review below by R.H. Fantastic value at £3.99 for arguably THE seminal work of the 20th century on the role and development of the AFV in modern warfare. A compelling, riveting, intellectually stimulating forensic analysis.
