German Army vs. Soviet Partisans
German Horse Cavalry & Mechanization
German Horse Cavalry, WW2
205 pages; 19 chapters and 4 appendixes
In World War II, the German Ost Armies on the Eastern Front were torn by
the problems of German horse cavalry and mechanization. There were
too many German generals who were either incompetent or downright traitors
to solve the problem. So the indecision related to German horse cavalry
and mechanization vacillated backwards and forwards. There was far more
too it than American, Canadian and British writers have ever recognized,
because they have always dismissed or overlooked key aspects of the
problem. The e-book German Horse Cavalry & Mechanization goes
against the collective befuddlement, ironically termed “conventional wisdom,”
of the leftist establishment that controls what goes on bookstore shelves. One
by one, German Horse Cavalry & Mechanization describes the various
aspects of the “horses versus vehicles” situation in the Third Reich. Each
imperative that dictated conclusions and decisions as part of a historical
matrix is revealed for the first time.
"Reinforced cavalry corps usually began an offensive mission by night marching to a friendly advanced flank position.
From there, the corps usually struck an enemy flank in coordination with a frontal, holding attack by neighboring
After tank supported rifle units broke through an enemy front, the mobile army would advance through the
breakthrough point organized into two echelons, with the armored corps in the first echelon and the cavalry corps in
the second echelon. The mobile army would plunge into the enemy operational depth to the deepest extent possible,
without regard for flank cover.
Within the enemy operational depth, a mobile strategic army might seek to defeat moving enemy operational reserves.
Such defeats could be obtained by flank envelopment or attacks from all sides. Whenever possible, such attacks were
to be developed into encirclements of enemy formations. Encirclement of major enemy formations, such as a three
division infantry corps, could be carried out by the strategic mobile army's two corps."
