Strange Victory : Hitler's Conquest of France, Hardback

Strange Victory : Hitler's Conquest of France Hardback


How did Hitler and his generals manage the swift conquest of France, considering that the French and their allies were superior in every measurable dimension and considering the Germans' own scepticism about their chances?

This title is a new interpretation of Germany's lightning attack that swept the Wehrmacht to Paris in the spring of 1940.

It studies the years leading up to those crucial weeks and suggests new ways to think about the decisions taken on both sides.
