Blitzkrieg in the Balkans

The German campaigns in the Balkans, Greece and the seizure of Crete are detailed in this long neglected account of the campaign as described from the German point of view. Out of print since the fifties, this new edition is edited and introduced by Emmy Award winning author and historian Bob Carruthers.

Based mainly on original German records and post-war military writings by veterans including Dr. Helmut Greiner, General Burkharth Mueller-Hillebrand, and General Hans von Greiffenberg, this fascinating account encompasses the lessons and conclusions drawn from the same German sources.

The work of preparing this study in English, which consisted of translating basic German records and manuscripts, performing additional research, expanding and then rewriting the narratives with an eye for continuity and factual data, was done chiefly by Mr. George E. Blau of the Foreign Studies Branch, Special Studies Division, Office of the Chief of Military History. In the process of presenting the material, every effort has been made to give a balanced account of German strategy and operations in the Balkans during the spring of 1941.
