General Information
Description
Heinz Wilhelm Guderian was a German general during World War II, noted for his success as a leader of Panzer units in Poland, France and Russia. Guderian had pioneered motorized tactics in the pre-war army, while keeping himself well-informed about tank development in other armies. In particular, he promoted the use of radio communication between tank-crews, and devised shock-tactics that proved highly effective. In 1940, he led the Panzers that broke the French defences at Sedan, leading to the surrender of France. In 1941, his well-planned attack on Moscow was interrupted by orders from Hitler, with whom he disagreed sharply, and he was transferred to the reserve. This marked the end of his ascendancy. After the defeat at Stalingrad, Hitler appointed him to a new post, rebuilding the shattered Panzer forces, but he feuded with many other generals, who managed to get his responsibilities re-allocated. He was then appointed Chief of the General Staff of the Army, but this was largely a symbolic post, since Hitler had effectively become his own Chief of Staff. From 1945-48, Guderian was held in U.S. custody, but released without charge.
