3.0 out of 5 stars Personal war memoir of Hitler's most outstanding general, 11 Mar 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Lost Victories: War Memoirs of Hitler's Most Brilliant General (Paperback)
Erich Von Manstein played a part in planning some of Nazi Germany's most stunning military triumphs, from the technically brilliant "Sichselschnitt" plan that destroyed the French Army in May of 1940, to the bloody Crimean Campaign of 1942.

Manstein's book is that of a professional military officer. He devotes a great deal of time to explaining the mechanics of planning an executing military strategy. His character portraits of his military colleagues lack the punch that a more independent military writer would give them; even his analysis of Adolf Hitler as a military commander is somewhat colorless. The one personal touch in the book is Manstein's account of the death of his son, fighting as a junior officer in a unit under his command.
