Hello experts of the forum,

Best regards.

Re: Blitzkrieg Unleashed: Poland 1939

The lack of Polish accounts is, for me, its main shortcoming. I can struggle by in German, French and Latin, but Polish is beyond my limited linguistic abilities, sadly. I hope that your well-written book will prompt a new span of interest in the Polish campaign of 1939 and thus, soon or later some...

Re: Blitzkrieg Unleashed: Poland 1939

Although I had had some difficult in finding Richard's book here in Italy, finally I bought and read "Blitzkrieg unleashed". I was by no mean disappointed by it. If Richard's goal was to let "imagine the reader he was there" (quoting his own words above), well, this objective has been reached. The b...

Re: What do you read at the moment?

The Blitzkrieg Legend by Karl-Heinz Frieser. Don't know if this book has already been discussed on this forum, but I recommended it warmly.

Re: Last soldier of the k.u.k. Armee have died 107 years old

Rest in peace, Herr Künstler, old hero!
Incidentally, it's curious that he died in Bad Mergentheim, the same place where also k.u.k. feldmarschall Franz Conrad von Hötzendorf had passed away in 1925.

Re: Could the Romanian Debacle been avoided?

Hi Kim Sung, For example, Russia dispatched just three divisions to the Carpathian Front. And wouldn't things have been different if enough Russian forces had rapidly advanced along the Danube river into Dobrogea to protect Constanţa from Mackensen's multinational army? Massive Russian reinforcement...

Re: Could the Romanian Debacle been avoided?

Hi Sid, Bulgaria over 1912-1918 deserves an English language book. Despite fighting everyone in the Balkans in 1912-13, and going down to a very expensive defeat, it still managed to have an influential military role in 1915-16 and to compete with better equipped Anglo-French troops at Salonika in 1...

Re: Could the Romanian Debacle been avoided?

Hi Kim, in my opinion, Romania's intervention might have been decisive in spring 1915. A joint entry of both Italy and Romania would have caused the collapse of Austria-Hungary and a decisive outcome of the war in the East and Balkan theatres. In the strategic situation of 1916, Romania was simply d...

Re:

Hitler only seemed able to avoid such an evolution, in spite of the endeavours made by the generals, the SS and the establishment in 1943 to persuade him to sign an armistice with USSR and to win, this way, the war in a single gulp. Now the problem is: why? Probably because, in my opinion, despite ...

Hi Richard....very, very interesting! Thanks for the link! Well, the book is a new release, I am confident they will translate it into English soon or later; if not, we simply must read it in German! :[] :wink: Do you know something more about the author, Musial? By the way, I am very skeptical abou...
