Hitler's PanzersHitler’s Panzers: The Lightning Attacks that Revolutionized Warfare

by Dennis Showalter, CC professor of history

Showalter, a World War II scholar, presents a comprehensive study of Nazi Germany’s armored forces and their influence on the role of the army in the Third Reich. Panzers, self-contained armored units able to operate independently, became the nucleus of the German army’s fighting power as well as its moral focus and the core of its identity, establishing an entirely new military doctrine. Showalter is a guest lecturer at West Point and former president of the Society for Military History; his book has been accepted by the History Book Club.
