A History of Blitzkrieg. No part of this book may be reproduced. Soviet Armour Since 1945. In his book At Duty’s Call, dealing with the motivation leading to the huge expansion of the British Army’s strength in 1914, the late Dr W. J. Reader made the interesting point that while every town and village has its own war memorial dedicated to those who made the ultimate sacrifice in both World Wars, there were actually very few memorials.

Perrett's book is a general discussion of the inception of the German panzer program as envisioned by Guderian and Hitler, its development in pre-war times, its accelerated refinement and adaptation to changing conditions and frequently urgently needed adjustments during the war itself, and its eventual destruction. The discussions of the campaigns in the field are too general to be of use to any but the complete newcomer to the subject; and some of the personalities are treated in insufficient depth. The book is also completely mis-titled, as it has nothing whatever to do with Iron Cross awardees.

The lasting legacy of the battle of Megiddo was that it revealed the nature of a modern 'Blitzkrieg' style campaign, producing a profound change in military thought and tactics - and foreshadowing the advance of Hitler's Panzers across Europe 20 years later. Скачать (pdf, 4. 1 Mb) Читать.

Perrett expands blitzkrieg from the normal France 1940 defeat to several "lightening wars" that saw operations conducted too quickly for the enemy to have time to react. Covers them pretty well. Has been accused of an English bias by other reviewers......hey! he's English. Why he mentions Vietnam is a mystery. Guerrilla warfare by definition is attritional warfare. The final invasion by the North was, however, a good example of a blitzkriegl

Nitpicking aside, it's a good read. I am glad to have a copy and predict that you will feel likewise.

Bryan Perret's A.H.of Blitzkrieg is an entertaining and quick read. Being English I suppose he is entitled to a little bias, and reading his impressions of the African and European campaigns in WWII puts emphasis on British accomplishments in the field, if perhaps a bit overstated compared to American histories. His China-Burma-India campaign analysis is excellent if all too brief. I recommend this book for a quick dip into the subject, but as it draws heavily on Achtung-Panzer! by Guderian, I urge you to read that first, and possibly How to Lose a Battle as well. You never go wrong reading original sources.

I'm not sure what the author's background is but this is among the most informative and well written books of modern military history I've read. It is the rare history that is simulaneously exciting and informative. For a short book it also provides good insight into high level command decisions conflicts and personalities as well as how talented mid-level officers can influence the early direction of evolving methods of warfare. Rarely publically stated, Blitzkrieg, even today, remains at the core of how the US defeats, in days to weeks, large enemy forces and overtakes entire countries with relatively small but highly mobile and combined arms deployments.

I agree with other reviewers that Perrett outlines the succesfull use of blitzkrieg in a useful and readable way.

I was giving him the distinction of knowing what he was talking about until he said a few words about the Vietnam War. His gross distortion of the war, blaming the American defeat on the media, and calling it a war against communism, rather than an American manipulated intervention in a civil war, indicates a blatant ignoring of facts he does not like. He quotes Westmoreland blaming the ultimate defeat of the South on lack of American support, and ignores the fact that Westmoreland is well-known liar, and that perhaps the South Vietnamese were not that motivated to keep on fighting for a corrupt government (and in fact never were).

Has this ignoring of the facts on the ground in Vietnam meant that he has also ignored facts he did not like in his previous analysis of blitzkreig. Possibly, I do not know. I just know I cannot trust anything he says.
