Inside the Nazi War Machine: How Three Generals Unleashed Hitler's Blitzkrieg Upon the World

Under orders of the Fuhrer, the German General Staff reluctantly drew up a lackluster plan of invasion for France. Yet it was the audacious scheme of three of Hitler’s top generals that brought down France’s military force, Rather than simply move troops to engage the enemy, for the first time they would unleash the tank and drive straight into the heart of their foe.

Publisher's Summary

In January of 1940, France possessed the most powerful army in Europe. Under orders of the Fuhrer, the German General Staff reluctantly drew up a lackluster plan of invasion. Yet it was the audacious scheme of three of Hitler’s top generals that brought down France’s military force, Rather than simply move troops to engage the enemy, for the first time they would unleash the tank and drive straight into the heart of their foe. Inside the Nazi War Machine explores how this new tactic – the blitzkrieg – gave control of Europe to the brutal Nazi regime and set the stage for World War II.

    Story
    "So good. Need to listen to it again."

    An excellent, lively book narrated by the best narrator Audible has!

    What more do you want? The drawbacks of Charbis tanks, Rommel's blasting away a hole in the Maginot line and driving his tanks through by firing at both flanks non-stop.

    The bravery of British betrayed by the French surrender, and the shock of the British ambush that forced Hitler to avoid attacking Dunkirk.

    As the author says: For want of a nail, the ship was lost. If Hitler had listened to his Generals and let them loose on Dunkirk instead of depending on Goering, the history would be different and we would all be typing this out in German.

    I play the Company of Heroes RTG, and I have learnt a lot of how to utilize the strategies outlined here.

    The book would have been spoiled if not for Ray Porter. He brings out the urgency, the panache, the chutzpah and the anger well.

    May he live long and prosper.

    "Good listen ..... however..."

    Before you listen to this audiobook, spend 15 minutes and print out a few maps of France, Belgium, Holland, and Germany. THEN sit down and listen to this book. Great listen for the history buff. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "LOVE THIS BOOK"
    If you could sum up Inside the Nazi War Machine in three words, what would they be?

    Detailed, Clear and Concise....I personally love books like this as the military thought going into campaigns to me is interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Both French and German commanders are discussed as well as the processes they followed to either achieve their goals or fall short of them.


    Which character – as performed by Ray Porter – was your favorite?

    Great steady pace not too slow or too fast.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The battle for Stonne was covered well.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly praise this book and encourage others to listen to it.
