Kesselring : the making of the Luftwaffe by Kenneth Macksey( Book )

13 editions published between 1978 and 2012 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kesselring-commander, leader, administrator; the only senior German officer to start and finish the Second World War holding a high command appointment. There was scarcely a major campaign in which he was not at some time deeply involved: he flew in the forefront of the battle over Poland, Holland, Britain, Russia and the Western Desert and was shot down five times; as a field commander he defended Tunisia, Italy and, ultimately, Germany. But it is as much for his role in the formation and development of the Luftwaffe that Kesselring is remembered-his were many of the ideas, plans and insights about the part played by aircraft in the land battle. They were central to the careful, systematic reorganization and building up of the German military machine in the 1920s and 30s. This first complete biography presents the complex, fascinating personality of a man whose qualities of utter determination, charm and good humor, harnessed to outstanding training and experience, enabled him to cope with both victory and defeat and, finally, when placed on trial for his life, to face his judges with dignity, equanimity and a staunch defense
Tank warfare : a history of tanks in battle by Kenneth Macksey( Book )

14 editions published between 1971 and 2013 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After its introduction during the First World War, the tank revolutionized warfare and proved to be a terrifying and efficient machine of war. Kenneth Macksey provides a study of the policy-makers and tank strategists, the technical and tactical development, as well as presenting the story of the tank on the battlefield'the split-second decisions, the battle-weary crews, and the endless mud in this fascinating and detailed account of tank warfare. Tank Warfare delves into the history of the tank, its formation and early prototypes, as well as how it came to be the master of the land battle, becoming Hitler's driving force for Blitzkrieg and changing the course of the battle of El Alamein
Guderian, Panzer general by Kenneth Macksey( Book )

45 editions published between 1974 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kenneth Macksey's highly regarded biography of Generaloberst Heinz Guderian provides a rare opportunity to observe the mind and motives of one of the foremost proponents of blitzkrieg. Now revised and fully updated, this latest edition draws upon fresh source material in order to shed new light on his life story and the activities of the General Staff officers." "Guderian was a rebel in search of ideals, and a general whose personality, genius and achievements far exceeded those of Rommel. A master of strategy and tactics, he built the Panzer force in the face of opposition from the German General Staff, and personally led the lightening campaigns by tanks and aircraft that put a large part of Europe under German domination." "As well as providing clear insight into the crucial campaigns throughout Europe, this is also a searing portrait of the Third Reich's leading personalities as they turned imminent victory into agonizing defeat, and illuminates why Guderian was so admired by some whilst denigrated by others."--Jacket

The Hitler options : alternate decisions of World War II( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this compelling book, ten military historians focus upon what might have happened if at ten crucial turning-points of the war Hitler had taken a different direction, or how he would have reacted if the Allies had changed course. There is a striking conviction about these self-contained scenarios. All are within the bounds of what could genuinely have occurred, projecting only from factual situations and the options that were available. Technical innovations and weapon capabilities retain practicability, with later technology excluded. Real people behave in character. The Hitler Options is a fascinating collection of original studies raising new possibilities, and will grip the reader as much by its thought-provoking content as by the sheer excitement of campaigns and battles that might have dramatically changed the history of the world
