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.
I am very pleased with the delivery and staff of the Tank Museum.
Very fast delivery , very impressed with everything. Thank you
The calendar and book arrived promptly and very well packaged as have several orders from the Museum whilst I've been in self imposed isolation.
My husband has been asking for this book for a while and I haven't been able to find it locally. It was great to find it here as he is also a big fan of the museum, and I was able to add other neat finds to my order.
The book itself is well-presented with introduction, illustrations and notes. If you like military history, it is fantastic - Guderian critiques the First World War and offers his professional perspective. He writes succinctly and well. I would assume that attendees of the tank museum have an interest in military history, including its technical aspects, and I would therefore go out on a limb and suggest this is absolutely a great buy they would not regret. It is an interesting and informative read.
