Author Name    Lucas, James.

Title   BATTLE GROUP! GERMAN KAMPFGRUPPEN ACTION OF WORLD WAR TWO.

Publisher    Rigel, London, 2004, reprint.

Seller ID   24455

192 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1898800081 B&w photographs, maps. "The German army in the Second World War sought to fight and win swift, decisive victories in a succession of short campaigns - blitzkrieg, or lightning war . Flexibility was as essential as the will to win. Battle groups - or shock troops - were created from miscellaneous, and often disparate, military units to undertake a specific local operation; it was the army's skill in combining superior n u m b e r s, aggressive tactics and the battle group commander's ability to exploit the changing situation on the ground which brought success on every battlefield. The actions described here by James Lucas, the military historian known for his c lo se s tu di es of the German soldier, cover all theatres of the war, and include battle groups large and small, deployed usually to smash a breach in the enemy line or seal off an enemy penentration. Many of the accounts demonstrate the autonom y g ive n t o a co mma nder of relatively low rank and the use he made of his powers. The battle groups' contribution to Wehrmacht fortunes offers powerful lessons in the tactics of battle management." Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/ bott om o f sp ine and flap -folds. Fine/Very Good+
