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.Hide synopsis

The dustwrapper bears several tiny chips in the middle of the front and rear panels, but is otherwise clean and sharp. The text block is unmarked, clean, and crisp throughout. This is an Ex-Library copy, designated only by two library labels on the front and rear paste-downs. All in all, a great affordable copy of the memoirs of General Guderian, first published in English in 1952. The book remains controversial on several levels: many have denounced it as a self-serving apologia for the author and the Wehrmacht in general, while others question the veracity of Guderian's behind-the-scenes reporting. Nevertheless, this is a very important document in Second World War history, from the pen of the Chief of the Nazi General Staff. Proceeds of this sale support the collection of the Pritzker Military Library.

I felt that this book was a real find...Any person with a serious collection of this era would appreciate this book. It is well translated and documents the actual information that present day authors just re-write.
Guderian was an aristocrat, military professional and innovator (panzer development), as well as a brave and extraordinary leader. That he additionally wrote well just isn't fair! Although of course concentrating on panzers, this book is also a good glimpse of WWII from the German point of view. ...
