    1. If ever you find a tank parked in your driveway and suddenly develop a need to invade a small country this is the book for you.


    2. -En palabras del propio autor, “narrar el desarrollo del tanque desde el punto de vista del soldado que lo utiliza”.-Género. Ensayo.Lo que nos cuenta. Primero, una revisión de la concepción, actividad operativa en el campo de batalla y desarrollo de los tanques durante la Gran Guerra. Después, análisis de las innovaciones técnicas y tácticas del arma blindada (y de sus contramedidas) durante la postguerra. A continuación, una revisión de las fuerzas motorizadas y blindadas alemanas [...]


    3. Quite good - detailed description of tank's history, and operations during WWI. Second part of the book provides some details about building the new army after WWI, and thoughts about future operations.


    4. Ген. Хайнц Гудериан е може би най-успешният танков генерал на Вермахта през Втората световна война, създател на т.н. бърза война (блицкриг, макар че той не я нарича така), основата на която е бързо и агресивно навлизане на многобройни танкови части през линиите на противника [...]


    5. Not bad. Essentially, a tactician's textbook. Written pre-WWII, when tanks were still very much in their infancy. Guderian was ahead of all the leading foreign military "armoured specialists", in the way armour was to be employed in the field, and went on to prove it in Germany's early successes of the war. Reading through some of the theories and strategies could, at times, be a little tedious. Being a history buff, I found the best parts to be the actual recounting of tank battles in WWI, how [...]


    6. This book is not for the casual reader of World War II history. Written between the wars, this is Guderian's account of the development of German armored tactics which would later be labeled as "Blitzkreig" For the more serious WWII scholar, Guderian's book is essential reading that should sit beside Rommel's "Infantry Attacks".


    7. Very good book for any history or war buff. Heinz Guderian writing in 1937 theorizes what he called Total War, and we called Blitzkrieg.This book is a short but thoughtful book. The author lays out the problem and provides his insight in resolving the mistakes of the past.When I finished reading I wondered if the enemy ever read the book. Were they prepared or did they wait to be confronted and then try to solve the puzzle.


    8. A superb book on the development and theory of armored warfare prior to ww2. It May be a bit biased in certain aspects off the period's politics but all' in all a must read for armor entusiasts.



    9. I was inside the mind of a genious.This isn´t an easy book to read, I tought that it is a bit boring, specially for someone that doesn´t like military strategy and it isn´t familiarize with the theme. Also it would be great to update the maps of the battles.Unfortunately for mankind, Guderian created, at the time, the best army in the world thanks to it´s revolutionary theories about the use of tanks and the creation of a mecanized independent tank brigade and the close cooperation between t [...]


    10. It is interesting reading a book about history, that is itself, history. Published just before the second world war, this exceptional book is Heinz Guderian's play book for armoured warfare. He in the text he first of all goes into exact detail on a number of battles from the First World War. Not necessarily the famous one's but battles that slowly build up a picture of the First World War methods used by the then infant tank troops. Then, he takes us through the developments after the First Wor [...]


    11. Written in 1937, this book is an interesting study of "what went wrong" in World War I, which is Guderian's focus throughout the text, as he probes different strategies that failed and succeeded. The text is certainly phrophetic with the rise of armoured vehicles' importance in modern warfare with their emphasis on speed, armour, and radios (communication and coordination), which is quite the leap from trenches and fixed artillery positions from years before. Not only that, but two years after t [...]


    12. I forced myself to read this before reading Guderian's 'Panzer Leader', just to give myself a little more background or insight into the author. I'm very happy that I did.'Achtung Panzer' shows how Guderian brings about his concept of how to use armour (or any new technology to gain the upper hand) for future conflicts; the blueprint for the so-called 'blitzkrieg' or combined arms approach, with an emphasis on armoured/mechanized units leading the way.It starts off rather slow, but, I guess, nec [...]

    14. Heinz Guderian was a pioneer in the development of armored warfare and the most important military strategist in the first half of the 20th century. When distilled down to its most basic components, Guderian was an innovator in the application of a relatively new technology (though we tend not to view these things through that lens). Achtung-Panzer! is a military classic and a good read. As a primmer, I would recommend "Kaiserschlacht 1918" by Randal Gray from Osprey Publishing. The Ludendorff O [...]


    15. First of all I will admit that I love this book. I got it in high school and thoroughly enjoyed it. With that said, this book is not for everyone. While it describes a lot of World War I combat it is no Storm of Steel or All Quiet on the Western Front. Achtung Panzer is not a memoir or a novel, it is Guderian's argument for the use of tanks in modern warfare. This book sums up tank use in WWI and the development of "blitzkrieg," albeit with Guderian's fairly biased opinions. After the war Guderi [...]


    16. Written in a straightforward manner, which may be how Guderian did it originally, or extra work on the part of the translator. Starts with a look at how the tank evolved, based on his own experiences in WWI. Then it follows up with how the Allies improved things after (Germany wasn't allowed to make its own following the Versailles Treaty).There are chapters on the organisation of German panzer units and how they fit in with other arms to work together and achieve objectives.Overall it's a good [...]


    17. Clearly written/translated and organised into sensible sections. The first half dragged a bit for me in places, but then I lack a comprehensive prior knowledge of the organisations of the fronts in WW1. Excellent introduction and notes in the English translation.Only real complaint is the production of the edition I read (Cassell paperbacks). The type is too small throughout the book, almost amusingly so by the time it gets to the end of chapter notes. The original maps have been reproduced, but [...]


    18. The Great War examples were astonishing and clearly pointed out how and why the tanks were invented and how they were misused at that point. This then reveals the thought process behind the combined arms approach to (tank) warfare.In the "what goes on now" part one can see pretty clearly some of the forecoming developments, vehicle-wise at least.A very, very interesting read. I had a good amount of "of course that's the way it should work!" moments while reading about the "modern panzer tactics" [...]


    19. A very far-sighted analysis of the panzer weapons capabilities. One of the most talented military commanders of the 20th century begins with thorough dissection of WW1 positional warfare, proceeds to analyse allied tank attacks at the Somme, Cambrai and Soisson and then prognoses, how the future of tanks and war in general looks. His insights were proved very soon after this book was published- and when german tanks overran Poland, France, and a big chunk of USSR, Germany had mainly Guderian to [...]


    20. A solid primary source for those interested in learning about the pre-WWII evolution of German armoured theory. However, enthusiasts should take note that much of the book centres on Guderian's analysis of Allied tank usage during the Great War, so be prepared for an historical lesson within an historical lesson. :-)Also, be aware that carrying this book around in public makes you look like a neo-nazi. Steal the book-cover off something else (preferably something socially acceptable like the new [...]


    21. An excellent history and study of early tank warfare. Would have been four stars but for the helpful notes, context, and corrections by the English language editor. Guderian does a great job of examining WW 1 tank operations and explaining the lessons of what went right and wrong in those battles. He then applies those lessons to the then-current (mid-late 1930s) political situation to argue how armor warfare should be fought. Guderian's arguments are clear, concise, and prophetic. When the Germ [...]


    22. Una aproximación diferente a la Primera Guerra Mundial, a sus consecuencias y a la tecnología y las tácticas asociadas de la guerra. Es un poco escalofriante ver cómo Guderian habla de la guerra desde un punto de vista podríamos decir científico o cómo habla de la Guerra Civil Española como un laboratorio del que aprender lecciones.Si Hitler hubiese dejado las decisiones militares a Guderian y otros militares alemanes me imagino que esta reseña la estaría escribiendo en alemán.


    23. Quite possibly the seminal book in 20th Century War Studies because out of it came the then-most fearful war machine in the history of the world. The key to this book is in understanding Guderian's broad theory: mobilization, coordination and communication. If you don't know anything about WWII, steer clear of this one. If you do, then this might interest you. If you're an armoured warfare buff, this is a must-read.


    24. I wouldn't say I "really liked" Guderian's Achtung Panzer, but this is such a fundamental book for anyone interested in the development of mechanized warfare in the inter war period that it deserves this 4-star mark.One can see there the core of Guderian's main ideas on C3, combined arms cooperation and mobility as the decisive factors in armored operations.


    25. I read this book in English, the Brockhampton Press edition, and found it to be a fascinating read, every bit the book others promised it to be. A standard reference for more than half a century, this book must be on your bookshelf if you have any interest in armoured warfare. It may even improve your skill at Avalon Hill panzer games.


    26. Guderian is very in depth of how armored forces were developed in World War 1, and even expresses the importance of armored divisions (rather than infantry combined with armored).Any military Historian should read this great book!



    27. This book has given me a greater understanding of the development of both the tank and the tactics in their use. I recommend this to anyone interested in either of those subjects.


    28. A fantastic book only nominally about tank warfare. It is actually about integrating new technology. Fantastic. A must read.
