Descripción del producto


This work, part of Potomac Books excellent Military Profiles series, is a balanced and concise study of a complex German soldier.

Descripción del producto

Biographers and historians have lionized Heinz Guderian as the legendary father of the German armored force and brilliant practitioner of blitzkrieg maneuver warfare. 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. Unfortunately, too many of Guderian’s biographers have accepted his view of his accomplishments at face value, without sufficient critical scrutiny, resulting in an undeserved hagiography.

While undoubtedly a great military figure of appreciable ego and ambition and with a volatile, impetuous, and difficult personality, Guderian was determined to achieve his vision of a war-winning armored force irrespective of the consequences. He proved to be a man who was politically naive enough to fall under the sway of Hitler and National Socialism and yet arrogant enough to believe he could save Germany from inevitable defeat late in the war, despite Hitler’s interference. At the same time, Guderian was unwilling either to participate in attempts to remove Hitler or to denounce as traitors the conspirators who did. In the end, he distorted the truth to establish his place in history. In the process, he denigrated the myriad important contributions of his fellow officers as he took personal credit for what were, in reality, collective accomplishments. Thus, he succeeded in creating a legend that has endured long after his death.

This brief biography puts the record straight by placing Guderian’s career and accomplishments into sharper and more accurate relief. It exposes the real Heinz Guderian, not the man of legend.

I would like to think that I have an open mind when it comes to military history. When I read this book I found it interesting and thought provoking. It presented something more than the 2-dimensional view of the man found in many previous Wehrmacht biographies. I cannot help but believe that Hart intended to write a positive biography of Guderian but instead found out about things that disillusioned the author, hence Guderian comes off a lot "darker" than he ever portrayed himself or how historians during the Cold War (when Germany was part of NATO) chose to portray Guderian. Hence the previous emphasis on his performance as a panzer commander and less so on his time as Army Chief of Staff. Those readers who prefer the "two-dimensional" view of German officers seem to ignore the human condition. German soldiers probably felt the same professional jealousy, tendency to embrace bureaucratic empire building, and drift toward self-promotion as their counterparts in other armies. I cannot believe the experience of German generals who fought in World War One and served in the Reichswehr prepared them to be morally superior to generals in other armies. I tend to believe that truth might be found somewhere in the center. I would recommend comparing both earlier versions and Hart to arrive at your own conclusions.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas The Real Heinz Guderian- Warts and All 1 de julio de 2009
Por Cody Carlson - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
Russell A. Hart's biography, "Guderian: Panzer Pioneer or Myth Maker?" is an honest look at Hitler's master of the Blitzkrieg. Deconstructing the Guderian myth with care and detail, Hart shows the officer for what he was: a brilliant yet corrupt Nazi stooge who willingly went along with Hitler even after the horror of the regime was revealed.

If Guderian and the other generals had been merely apolitical technocrats, then why did they stay with Hitler through thick and thin? Why did they agree to Hitler's murderous plans for the Soviet peoples within the context of Barbarossa? The answer, Hart provides is simple- they weren't apolitical and they were mired in corruption.

Like many German generals, Guderian accepted Hitler's bribes, including an estate in German-occupied Poland. Any trace of moral courage one attempts to find in Guderian vanishes when one learns that he kept himself incommunicado on that estate on July 20th, 1944. When he came back his words and actions branded him a Nazi through and through, no matter what he later wrote.

Guderian's memoir "Panzer Leader" is an important book in the study of the Second World War, but must be read with a grain of salt. Immediately after finishing it the serious student of history needs to jump on Hart's biography to sift through Guderian's half-truths.

1.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Macksey with a twist of Lemon 30 de noviembre de 2006
Por Frederick L. Clemens - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa dura Compra verificada
This is a much-anticipated, but ultimately disappointing new profile of Guderian. The author has done very little in the way of original research and has ignored some very important, easily accessible sources. He has basically taken Macksey's biography of Guderian, stripped out the positive elements, and tossed in some negative elements from the recent works of other historians. This isn't a biography, it's a hatchet job and from all the poor writing it contains - overloaded adjectives and repeated cliches - it's a very rushed hatchet job at that.

Guderian deserves better than this. If a biographer chooses to re-examine Guderian's life and perhaps deflate his legend along the way, he should do so using all available sources, such as Guderian's personal papers at the German military archives and the interrogation reports and unit records easily obtainable at a number of archives, including the US National Archives. Anything less than that is not worth the paper it is printed on.

Indeed, this book has an appealing title and claim: revealing the "true" Guderian behing the myhth. This is of course always a "selling" claim but only if you are capable of making a serious argument. However, the book is far from it. I agree with the other reviewer that:as you read this book you feel like you are reading cheap gossip. Quite often it goes like this: "Guderian says so and so but actually it was not so". It is repetitive, badly written and not convincing in any way.if you take the challenge of revising the (hi)story of a very prominent historical figure you should do more than that: it is necessary to provide much more compelling arguments and evidence. Let me add this too: the book is so bad that I could not put it in my library; probably I will get rid of it.

Por Jonathan G Scott - Publicado en
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
This book "brings to light" several of the nefarious and less than flattering aspects of a German Army leader who for years received mostly praise from biographers and essay writers. Still, the author points out some positive qualities that Hitler's "Blitzkrieg" knight possessed and demonstrated.
