Heinz Guderian has 21 books on Goodreads with ratings. Heinz Guderian’s most popular book is Panzer Leader. In the earlier book Guderian presents a cogent analysis of how he persuaded the very reluctant German Army to accept the concept of a mobile battlefield and in Panzer Leader he demonstrates how that mobility provided the huge tactical advantage to the blitzkrieg through Guderian book, Belgium, Luxemburg, and ultimately France that very well should have determined the outcome of the war (see Dunkirk above)/5().

This is one of the most significant military books of the twentieth century. By an outstanding soldier of independent mind, it pushed forward the evolution of land warfare and was directly responsible for German armoured supremacy in the early years of the Second World War.

Guderian's memoir is must reading for any student of World War II. It is a lucid and captivating view from the German perspective. There's really nothing more worth saying about this important book.4/5(35).

This is a flawed book on Guderian in World War II. It deals with his creation of armored forces which were so victorious in May, in France and also earlier in /5.

English Panzer Leader (German: Erinnerungen eines Soldaten, literally "Memories of a Soldier") is an autobiography by Heinz Guderian. The book, written during his imprisonment by the Allies after the war, describes Guderian's service in the Panzer arm of the Heer before and during World War II.

Guderian was one of the major figures helping to develop the Panzer doctrine of quick striking and deep thrusting armored attacks. And the book portrays the resistance from /5. Guderian’s first book on tank warfare appeared before the war; however, he actually had to pull political strings to gain command of a mechanized corps for the invasion of Poland in Although not historically the first panzer leader, he did epitomize and demonstrate what tankers could accomplish when led by a determined, well-trained, and fearless commander.

Guderian: Panzer Pioneer or Myth Maker. By Russell Hart. Potomac Books, $ Except for the glamorous Erwin Rommel, no German general is better known than Heinz Guderian. His memoir, first published in English as Panzer Leader (), became a bestseller in the United States.

As with Rommel (and, for that matter, Wernher von. Product Description: This book gives a focused, military biography of Heinz Guderian, perhaps the most highly respected tank commander of World War II. Guderian was a typical product of the Prussian military elite; the son of a general in the army, there was little doubt that he would follow in his father's footsteps.

Eisenhower) General Heinz Guderian's revolutionary strategic vision and his skill in armored combat brought Germany its initial victories during World War : Hachette Books.

Achtung – Panzer.

The book also argues against the continued use of cavalry given Author: Heinz Guderian. Guderian explored the possibilities of a combined warfare which utilized the use of tanks supported by motorized infantry and airplanes.

Even though he wrote several other books during his life, Achtung – Panzer remains most influential. Through this book, he shaped the German Panzer divisions and the tactics they used.

Kenneth Macksey recounts the story of the father of modern tank warfare in Guderian: Panzer General (Stackpole Books, Mechanicsburg, Pa., $).

At negligible cost and with only three divisions, while aided by sporadic air power, Guderian had thrown the Allied armies into chaos and accomplished in a matter of days what the entire German army Author: Historynet Staff. Panzer warfare had come of age, exactly as he had first English translation of Heinz Guderian's classic book - used as a textbook by Panzer officers in the war - has an introduction and extensive background notes by the modern English historian Paul Harris.5/5(3).

This book offers fascinating insights into the major leaders of Nazi Germany and the operations of the German army during World War II.5/5(5).

As Russell A. Hart argues, Guderian created this legend with his own highly influential yet self-serving and distorted memoir, which remains one of the most widely read accounts of the Second World War.This book shows just how intelligent and far-seeing Guderian was.

Initially the book provides an overview on weapons and tactics in the first world war, before moving on to Guderian's own ideas for the needs and tactics needed for a successful tank force. What suprised me most was how relevant his thoughts are in a modern by: 7. Guderian was a German Panzer expert, & wrote a book in about Panzer tactics theories ("Achtung Panzer!)".

This book is his 2nd & is his life story. He was both a field commander (a Panzer Division, a Panzer Corps, & then a Panzer Army) fromin Poland-France-Russia.5/5(5).
