These examples are not my inventions. For example the info that in Poland Germans didn't operate with armoured-motorized Corps and didn't have any, but Panzer divisions fought separately (while in fact they had plenty of armoured-motorized Corps - XIX., XVI., XV., XIV., XXII., some of them cooperated with each other, for example XVI., XV. and XIV. or XIX. and XXII.) can be found in "The Blitzkrieg Legend" on page 18. Info that on 28.09.1939 Poland signed capitulation is also common.Domen123 wrote:How common is to find info in any British / American source, that for example - "Germans reached Warsaw in 6 days", "Polish army was using 19th century tactics", "Germans didn't have Panzer Corps in Poland, Panzer divisions fought separately", "on 28.09.1939 Poland signed capitulation", "French were retreating / surrendering almost without resistance, only the British Expeditionary Corps fought bravely and succeeded near Dunkirk and this was the first turning point of WW2", etc.
On page 18 of "The Blitzkrieg Legend" we can find:
"[...] during the Polish campaign German armor was not yet employed independently on operational level either at the corps or army echelons. Instead the Panzer formations on the tactical level usually fought in a divisional framework." - both the claim that in Poland Germans didn't have armoured corps and the claim that Panzer division is a formation designed to work on tactical level (even single Panzer division is a formation clearly designed to complete operational tasks) are false.
On the next page of "The Blitzkrieg Legend" (page 19) author writes:
"[Polish army] was old-fashioned in terms of equipment and training" - so I am asking, in what ways was the Polish army more old-fashioned in terms of equipment and training than - for example - French or Czechoslovakian army of the same time, which is considered (but I am not sure why) as modern by Western historians.
On the same page he writes:
"[...] anachronistic tragedy that Guderian reported of the troopers of the Polish Pomorska Cavalry Brigade attacking German Panzers with their sabers".
Thus I think that such books like Richard's book are very necessary (even if I don't agree with some aspects of his book ). What is even more necessary is translating Polish works / sources on the campaign to English, as Richard noticed it is shameful that Poland issued hardly any books in English on this topic.
I wish You a lot of further fruitful work, Richard!
