Example text

The fire discipline so highly developed in the German mechanized arm is thereby justified. (e) The combat must not degenerate into fragmentary individual combats. A team spirit must prevail down to the smallest units. From the brigade down to the section, tank leaders must continue to wage the combat as a whole, violently but with flexibility. The presence of the commanding officers at the front and the existence of good radio communications appear to be absolute necessities. 30 GERMAN MECHANIZED ARMY (f) Envelopment and attacks from the rear are sought as being the most profitable.

Villages and Woods A tank fears villages and woods. If these are organized for defense and offer a stubborn resistance, they can isolate the tank from its infantry, artillery, and means of supply. e. Armor The armor of the tank has proved to be superior to the fire of the defense. The shell must reconquer its superiority over the armor plate. f. Antitank Guns Too often the antitank guns of the defense have been submerged by the onrush of tanks. Prior to the war the Germans calculated that each antitank gun attacked by compact tank units could hardly destroy more than three tanks before being destroyed itself.

4. COMBAT OF THE ARMORED DIVISION a. Attack Quick and brutal action is of primary importance. The maximum effect of surprise must be produced. The adversary must not be allowed time to recover from his surprise and to react. From beginning to end, the fight must have the pace of a fast boxing match. Blows must be dealt in such a manner that the enemy is not given a chance to catch his breath. His morale must be completely shattered. For this purpose, both from a tactical as well asfrom a strategical point of view, the selection of the maneuver to be carried out must always be inspired by the desire to disconcert the enemy command through its very boldness and rapidity.
