Hitler's Last Ditch, 1945 is an e-book that describes German Army
Fortresses in the East, in World War II.
In 1944 and 1945, millions of Soviet
troops and tens of thousands of Soviet tanks swept irresistibly toward the
borders of Germany. Most
German Army generals, punch-drunk, panicky, and
dreaming of peace, believed the Reds were unstoppable. However,
Hitler
maintained his combat spirit and stepped into the
German Army general’s
leadership vacuum, created the
Strategic Breakwater Concept (and we're
not talking about the wet pants so many
German Army generals had from
already fearfully breaking water).
Review Table of Contents
"The German Army was on the retreat during most of World War II, from 1942 through 1945. After 1943, hte German
Army's top generals began to favor the “trading space for time” gambit and became rapidly obsessed with than localities,“
to “we can win if we have freedom of maneuver.” They never seemed to realize that by the time they than localities,“ to “we
can win if we have freedom of maneuver.” They never seemed to realize that by the time they retrograded to Germany,
they would be out of space.
They moved inevitably towards Berlin’s battle of 1945 and Hitler’s Berlin bunker.
The German General Staff and the German officer corps in 1944-45, suffered from several dogmatic biases, including an
aversion to any type of passive defense, especially the city-fortress modality. As a result, the German generals favored
only retrograde operations leavened with some limited active defense. In the meantime,
the German Army developed a
number of defenses against Red Army breakthroughs
of their defensive fronts. However, by 1944, the German Army
ran out of imagination
at a faster rate than its resources dissipated. German generals lost their heart and the Red army
became unstoppable.
The
German army’s generals in the east, with a few exceptions, were defeatists and unable to save their troops from
death or slavery, much less conduct any semblance of Operational Level Combat. That is why all German feats of warfare
were scored at the tactical level by the heroic and capable German frontline troops. The German generals were, for the
most part, a pack of whipped curs, snarling and whimpering as they withdrew with their tails between their legs, To
German generals in 1944-45, the best place to fight was always fifty to one hundred kilometers to their rear. They moved
inevitably towards
Berlin’s battle of 1945 and Hitler’s Berlin bunker.

Hitler conceived of a series of fortified cities (Fortresses) and zones that
would simultaneously attract Soviet divisions, impede logistics efforts, and
increase enemy casualties. Many
German Fortress cities in the East gave a
good account of themselves, others, like
Fortress Koenigsberg were
betrayed by German traitors.
Hitler's Last Ditch discusses how well Hitler's
fortress city ideas
held up, as over ninety percent of his dispirited or
traitorous generals sabotaged the
Breakwater Concept. The reader will learn
what went wrong, and how it could have worked. It all ended in
Hitler's Berlin
Bunker
