Panzer Commander Hermann Balck | Germany’s Master Tactician

Due for release April 2022 in the ANZ.


 

PANZER COMMANDER HERMANN BALCK is regarded as one of the world’s greatest armoured warfare commanders. During World War II, he directed panzer troops from the front line and led by example, putting himself in extreme danger when rallying his soldiers to surge forward. He fought battles that were masterpieces of tactical operations, utilising speed, surprise and a remarkable ability to motivate his men to achieve what they considered to be impossible.

In this intriguing history, we follow his perilous journey through the fields of France, the mountains of Greece and the steppes of Russia. In Greece, through flair and innovative leadership, his soldiers overcome every obstacle to defeat determined Allied forces defending the narrow mountain passes.
