area of World War II research heretofore ignored.
German Army Smoke Screens tells the story of how and why
the German Army in World War II became masters of smoke
screen tactics. The various German Army Smoke Screens and
smoke screen tactics presents an awesome conceptology for
research, since so little has been written about it. That is the motivation
for QuikManeuvers.com’s German Army Smoke Screens.
German Army Smoke Screens will set your teeth on edge with its
description of smoke screen tactics, when you will realize that you
never would have thought of them before QuikManeuvers.com
"Part of an Allied German armored division was brought up to help stem a German advance. It succeeded in ambushing a
column of German tanks. Some damage was inflicted and the Germans withdrew, laying down a smoke screen. The
commander of the Allied German force waited for the smoke to lift, thinking that it could not last long. But it persisted,
and, since the terrain did not permit bypassing the screen, he gave orders for his tanks to proceed through it. As soon as
the Allied German tanks were silhouetted on the other side, the Germans fired on them with everything they had, and
inflicted a great deal of damage before retreating.
The Germans have also tried some interesting experiments to make tanks vulnerable. Their glass smoke grenades seem
to be designed specifically for antitank use, but might also be used against pillboxes.
The Germans believe that by breaking smoke grenades over air-intake openings, it is sometimes possible to force a crew
to evacuate its tank, or at least to have great trouble in handling it. Also, the Germans have experimented with the trick of
tying smoke grenades— probably with time fuses—to each end of a 6- or 7-foot rope and throwing it across the barrel of
the tank's gun."

Although a number of amateur armies, especially the US ground forces, essentially ignore smoke screen
tactics, German Army Smoke Screens will teach smoke screen tactics to readers who otherwise
would never have got the chance to know. The value of smoke screens is more important today than ever
before because smoke screens can easily screw up all the high tech machinery of the US military and its
clones. German Army Smoke Screens should open the door to knowledge for anyone who instinctively
realizes its importance.
