One thought on “Blitzkrieg”

  1. One of the things that I've always wondered about WW2 is how did Prussia feel when Germany invaded Poland? Were they on the same side already or was Prussia forced into the Axis? This book sort of answers the question but I want more.

  2. The reason I chose this book was to learn more about World War Two. The book is mainly about the German side of the war focusing on their battles, diplomacies, tactics, etc. It starts from Hitler's rise to power to the Soviet flag rising over Berlin. My favorite quote from the book was actually a quote from Joseph Stalin which states, " One death is a tragedy; a million is a statistic." This is true because if for example we're on the news and the speaker talks about how many Americans have died [...]

  3. This book was great, and was full of A LOT of information about World War II. This includes scientist that were effected by the war, battle tactics and information about all of the armies that were apart of this war, how the countries lived and wjat happened to them, and MUCH more information. This book will give you inspiration and make you want to learn more and more about the amazing history of World War II. Although, much of the content was boring, considering that it IS a non-fiction book a [...]

  4. Bought this Life Time series in the early 1980's on WWII, a volume came to the house every 2 or 3 months so I could take my reading. It was very informative and enjoyable read, I still use it for reference.

  5. Decent history book out of the Time-Life WW2 series - covers the attack on Poland to the fall of Paris. I've realized I want to read a book that covers the Fall Gelb operation in more detail but not too much detail. Doesn't seem like an easy task to find.

  6. There are a lot of characters in this book & it bounces around a bit. Defiantly not a quick read. But yet still very good.

  7. An excellent and in-depth account of Blitzkrieg tactics and how they were employed against Poland, the Low Countries, and France.
