Heinz Guderian - master of the Blitzkrieg and father of modern tank warfare - commanded the German XIX Army Corps as it rampaged across Poland in 1939.

Personally leading the devastating attack which traversed the Ardennes Forest and broke through French lines, he was at the forefront of the race to the Channel coast. Only Hitler's personal command to halt prevented Guderian's tanks and troops turning Dunkirk into an Allied bloodbath.

Later commanding Panzergruppe 2 in Operation Barbarossa, Guderian's armoured spearhead took Smolensk after fierce fighting and was poised to launch the final assault on Moscow when he was ordered south to Kiev. In the battle that followed, he helped encircle and capture over 600,000 Soviet troops after days of combat in the most terrible conditions.

Panzer Leader is a searing firsthand account of the most effective fighting force in modern history by the man who commanded it.

Notă biografică

General Heinz Guderian commanded the German panzer forces in Operation Barbarossa, but was dismissed for taking a timely step backward instead of pandering to Hitler's illusions. Guderian was adjudged free of any connection to war crimes, and did not stand trial at Nuremberg.


"This brilliant memoir is a mesmerizing read.... A great book by a great soldier."--Stephen E. Ambrose

"Panzer Leader belongs on the shelf of every serious student of this violent twentieth century."--John S. D. Eisenhower

"Guderian's memoirs belong to the classics of military literature, comparable to Grant's or Sherman's."--Newsweek

"His contempt for the Nazis is never far from the surface.... What the general does not say about the great moral and human issues of his era is as revealing as anything ever written about the mentality of the German officer corps."--New Yorker

"There is no soberer and better story of how and why the Wehrmacht failed in Russia.... The military detail is touched by sharp descriptions of the fighting and vivid glimpses of the vague, distorted, half-life of men at war."--New York Times Book Review
