German Army vs. Soviet Partisans
German Paratroops Conquer Impregnable Fortress
227 pages; 12 chapters and 3 appendixes
The Belgian Army experts in the 1930s were excellent fortress builders and their
fortification zone plans were very professional. Belgium’s Eben Emael was considered
to be the most impregnable fortress in Europe. Eben Emael, 15-Minute Conquest
is an e-book that explains why the great fortress of Eben Emael fell to German
paratroops in fifteen minutes. In Eben Emael, 15-Minute Conquest the reader will
learn how sixty German paratroops conquered a powerful fortress manned by 1200
Belgians. Eben Emael, 15-Minute Conquest occurred in spite of the fact that the
German attackers were outnumbered 17 to 1 by the Belgian defenders, who had an
artillery defensive firepower factor advantage equal to 20,000 to 1 over the German
paratroops. When you read Eben Emael, 15-Minute Conquest, you will realize why
the conquest of Eben Emael was a remarkable achievement and one of Adolph Hitler’s
many extraordinary military coups.
"To the world, the fifteen minute conquest of Eben Emael Fortress was a shocking unbelievable victory by the Germans.
In fact, very few of the real facts of the German conquest were known. The Germans put a tight security blanket over the
operation, which held for over five years.
Pictures were circulated that depicted German paratroops floating to the ground firing machine guns while in the air. The
people of the world were mystified. They wanted to know: What happened? How did it happen? Are the Germans really
military supermen who cannot be beaten? What was that true? The Belgians claimed that an entire German division
attacked Eben Emael and that the Germans lost hundreds of men. Yet the Germans reported 12 casualties and 1200
Belgian prisoners. How can it be true? How could the Belgians kill so many and lose hardly anyone? Who was lying? How
could the most impregnable fortress in Europe fall within a day? (No one learned the answers to those questions until
long after World War II was over.)"
