Summary
"Although the German Army was a relative latecomer to the field of armoured warfare, its Panzer Divisions were a fundamental combat arm during the Blitzkrieg years of 1939-40, when 'lightning war' was waged across Europe. Without the Panzer Divisions, the German victory over Poland in 1939 and the May 1940 offensive against North-West Europe, which ended one month later with the defeat of France, would have been unthinkable. This book describes the birth and the evolution of the armoured units of the Panzerwaffe, focusing on the organization, tactics, weapons and command system that enabled the Panzer Divisions to become the most feared offensive branch of the Wehrmacht."--BOOK JACKET
