The German Army: Blitzkrieg 1939 - 41

Key Facts




This series focuses on the soldiers and warriors of specific historic conflicts. The in-depth text and illustrations will not fail to inspire modellers, historians, re-enactors and enthusiasts alike. Each volume features 20–22 detailed colour plates of fighting men in realistic settings, produced by world class artists.

As the seemingly unstoppable German juggernaut tore through the heart of Europe, battled on the sands of Africa, and flooded across the steppes of Russia, much of the world girdled itself to resist the Blitzkrieg – the Lightning War. There was no secret to the initial German successes. The newly developed combined arms force – Panzer, artillery, infantry and Luftwaffe – coupled with well planned operations from an effective command and control system, lead to the success of the German Army during the early years of World War II.

Gordon Rottman brings us twenty scenarios during the Blitzkrieg years, 1939 to 1941, with a background of history and description of uniform and equipment in each scenario. Among the battles covered are Warsaw, Narvik, Somme, Crete, Sidi Rezegh, Sollum, Smolensk and Leningrad.

296 x 210mm, , 20 colour; 26pp b/w plates.
