Heinz Guderian - master of the Blitzkrieg and father of modern tank warfare - commanded the German XIX Army Corps as it rampaged across Poland in 1939. 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.

Guderian's post-war autobiography Panzer Leader was a success with the reading public

Guderian's post-war autobiography Panzer Leader was a success with the reading public. He cast himself as an innovator and the "father" of the German panzer arm, both before the war and during the blitzkrieg years. This allowed him to re-imagine himself as the master of the blitzkrieg between 1939 and 1941; however, this was an exaggeration. Guderian's German memoirs were first published in 1950

Qwert
Guderian discusses these decisions, and many others, with a cold candor that is remarkable. I should note that no charges were brought against Guderian at any time during the post-war investigations and trials; he was the consummate military man - unaware, until after the war, of the horrors being inflicted on Jews, Poles, Russians, etc. by the SS and other “Party” troops after the military forces had taken a sector on the Eastern Front.

By way of criticism, there are times when Guderian’s detailed descriptions of tank strategies become a little much for the uneducated reader. But, if one is at all interested in the evolution of the use of armor in wartime I highly recommend reading Achtung Panzer before Panzer Leader. In the earlier book Guderian presents a cogent analysis of how he persuaded the very reluctant German Army to accept the concept of a mobile battlefield and in Panzer Leader he demonstrates how that mobility provided the huge tactical advantage to the blitzkrieg through Holland, Belgium, Luxemburg, and ultimately France that very well should have determined the outcome of the war (see Dunkirk above). By the time Germany invaded Russia the surprise of that strategy was gone, but it nonetheless nearly resulted in the capture of Moscow (see above).

General Guderian was an honorable and loyal man who unfortunately had to serve a tyrant. His insight goes to the very core of the Third Reich. Guderian upholds the honor of the German Army against the continual doubts of the Nazis and Hitler, although he does not mention much or at all the Wehrmacht's participation in atrocities. Guderian claims he did not pass on the Commissar Order. Guderian developed and practically invented Blitzkrieg warfare, over the resistance of the old-fashioned, although crediting Liddell Hart with the basic concept. Hitler's dismissal of Guderian in Dec. 1941 and Guderian's inactivity for 1.5 years during WW2 show Hitler's mismanagement of the war and constant blaming of others. Guderian makes no comment about invading innocent countries, but finally diagnoses the ills and stupidity of the Third Reich and its leader. The autobiography pats Guderian on the back, but I tend to believe Guderian.

It is clear from the text of this book what kind of man Guderian was. Foremost a soldier, a patriot, and a man of character. As with most memoir's by the German general's of ww2, much of the text is dedicated to the structure, or lack of it, of the German high command and Hitler's ever increasing desire of control over all military conduct. Guderian sheds some light on the struggles of the general staff both on and off the battlefield as the army commanders are continually contradicted by der Führer and top elites as politics and social favoritism is ever increasingly brought into the mix in a place where such things hardly belong. One of the most impressive things about this book, and even more so about Guderian himself, is the undying patriotisom for which he and his fellow officers contained. Even in the darkest years of the war, they fought the loosing battle not for the Führer or his political party, but for absolute love and loyalty to their country and it's people. This book is just a small glimpse into the mind of the man who not only pioneered modern tank and armoured warfare, but also had a particular skill for being able to see the strengths and weaknesses not only of military operations, but also in people, and quite clearly the structure of Germany's high command and the government as a whole.

A lesson to all who care to learn. Presidents like Johnson and Obama should never try to micro manage war. Hitler micro managed a defeat. So did the two presidents I named. Germany’s defeat may have been inevitable but it was made more costly in every sense
Mission creep is also shown to be disastrous
Well written
Packed with information that was new to me
Strongly supports the concept of mobile warfare.
Audace, audace, tojour audace!

I have read the bios of most of the high ranking German leaders, Including Goering (who never got to write an autobiography for obvious reasons), Speer, kesselring, Von Manstein's disjointed memoirs, and "panzer battles" by von Mellenthin. So I can say that "Panzer leader" is one of the better autobiographies among this group and it is top notch.

It is very well written, stays on topic of who-what-when and most importantly HOW, and guderian also includes many of his personal perceptions, thoughts and opinions on the battles he fought, the German equipment and tanks vs. the Soviet ones and his view on the German military situation as the war unfolded.

Particularly interesting are his views on hitler and his opinion of hitler's amateurish meddling And his (guderian's) constant contention with hitler's bad decisions at every turn.
This book is a valuable addition to any serious study of WW2.
Broadcaster
Heinz Guderian was not just a very good general, he was also an innovator, and he was instrumental in creating the Panzer war, i.e. to attack by Panzer divisions and the way to do it. Nobody can criticize him as a general. It remains that he participated and how in many of the horrible things created by Hitler, Goebbels, Goring, Himmel etc. He tries to convince us that he ignored some of worst orders given by Hitler, but it is not the condivided opinion of other writers I have read. He would have been more convincing if he had not served in 1944-45 as Chief of Staff for Hitler himself. True, Hitler had come to power regularly,.i.e. in a legitimate way, and one could argue that a general should obey his legitimate chief.
But it seems to me that Guderian went a little bit too far. But he wrote an excellent book, not boring at all, and he has been endorsed, after the war, by generals of the British and American armies.
