PostSubject: Lost Victories - Von Manstein   Sun Jul 12, 2009 11:36 pm




Originally published in Germany in 1955, and in England and the United States in 1958, this classic memoir of WWII by a man who was an acknowledged military genius and probably Germany's top WWII general, is now made available again. Field Marshal Erich von Manstein described his book as a personal narrative of a soldier, discussing only those matters that had direct bearing on events in the military field. The essential thing, as he wrote, is to "know how the main personalities thought and reacted to events." This is what he tells us in this book.His account is detailed, yet dispassionate and objective. "Nothing is certain in war, when all is said and done," But in Manstein's record, at least, we can see clearly what forces were in action. In retrospect, perhaps his book takes on an even greater significance.

Nice primary source although von Manstein portrays himself in an innocent light as regards atrocities on the Eastern Front which recent evidence certainly does not support.

He got some jail time and still ended up as an advisor to the West German Government. Exclamation

I think referred to as 'turning a blind eye' ! pirat :lol!:Von Manstein and Guderian's 'clean' autobiographies published just after the war were perhaps an attempt to show Germany's fighting prowess against the Soviet Union in the light of the Cold War when the only 'bad' Germans were the Nazis and the SS . These books help to perpetrate the myth that all war crimes in the East were perpetrated by the SS and that the Wermacht was innocent.
