‘Deighton has a desire, unobtrusive but inflexible, to see the truth … Blitzkrieg is full of insights’ Financial TimesThis is the story of the Nazi conquest of western Europe, from Hitler’s rise to power and ‘lightning-fast war’, to his fatal mistake in halting the German advance on Dunkirk in 1940. Drawing on technical mastery and interviews with both Allied and German participants, Blitzkrieg sets out the technical thinking behind the attack and the weapons that made it possible. It is a compelling, detailed account of Europe’s darkest hour. ‘What Deighton did for the Battle of Britain in Fighter he has done for the land-war here … A rattlingly good yarn’ Guardian
