REVIEW The German Way of War From the Thirty Years' War to the Third Reich Modern War Studies

SUMMARY × The German Way of War From the Thirty Years' War to the Third Reich Modern War Studies REVIEW The German Way of War From the Thirty Years' War to the Third Reich Modern War Studies For Frederick the Great the prescription for warfare was simple kurz und vives short and lively wars that relied upon swift powerful and decisive military operations Robert Citino takes us on a dramatic march through Prussian and German military history to show how that primal theme played out Robert Citino is one of the leading historians of the German Army in the period 1919 1945 although he has extended his scope to the study of Blitzkrieg and armoured warfare generally His works are always meticulously researched drawing heavily on primary sources and provide significant insights I was therefore very interested to see this work where he has taken a much longer time period from the 1650s to the 1940s in an attempt to capture the essence of the German way of war The book was of especial interest to me given that I must confess my knowledge of the Napoleonic wars is only passing and of the wars before that sketchy at bestCitino starts by noting that the Germans themselves emphatically denied that they had any kind of scheme that enabled them to win wars There was no magic idea or concept He therefore explores the actual approach and experience of the Prussian German Army from the period of Frederick William the Great Elector through Frederick the Great to the time of Scharnhorst and Bluecher through to Moltke Schlieffen and then Seeckt and the WehrmachtWhat comes out to Citino is a simple but powerful picture Prussia and then the united Germany had no natural borders behind which it could shelter Nor did it have the geographic or economic depth that would enable it to withstand a long drawn out conflict Success not to say survival depended on wars being lively and short That meant that the army had to move fast both when moving from one part of the theatre of operations to another and in the context of battle Minor victories were insufficient the enemy needed to be defeated uickly and completely That reuired attacks to be made against the flanks and rear of the enemy and for those attacks to be multiplied in their impact through the factors of surprise and energyCitino underlines that these necessities reuired commanders to act uickly and decisively making their own rapid assessment of the situation and leading their troops with exceptional aggression always marching to the sound of the guns and attacking at every opportunity This would throw the enemy off balance and convince them that the battle was lost He notes that Prussian German commanders repeatedly ignored the overall plan set out by the commander in chief in favour of the offensive opportunities that opened up in front of them often threatening the success of that overall plan yet still securing victory through the overwhelming impact on the enemy And rather than be disciplined for this such commanders were repeatedly promotedCitino notes some key factors First this independence of command reflected the traditional relationship between the Junkers and the king and so might be considered sui generis rather than generally applicable or transferable That would help explain the major debate within the German Army during the 1880s and 1890s over whether commanders below battalion level should be accorded the same freedoms the fact that they ultimately were and indeed this was further extended to NCOs may suggest that Citino was too cautious over the potential for Auftragstaktik to travel beyond its original cultural contextCitino ends the book with what he considers the death of the traditional style of command with the assumption of control of the army by Hitler and the switch to detailed control by both the Fuehrer and senior commanders in December 1941 While part of this clearly stemmed from Hitler s personal approach to command Citino argues that it should not be forgotten that much of the actual change was implemented by senior generals within the army itself arguing that part of this may have been a result of a mismatch between the freedom reuired for the traditional independence of command and the complexity of battle in a context of coordinated artillery and air support This would suggest that Auftragstaktik to use a shorthand would be unlikely to be valid in the context of modern armoured warfare I have to say that I am not convinced The factors of fire support were of huge importance by the end of the First World War yet in many respects the scope for independent command by junior leaders reached a level never before experienced While not my own area of expertise I believe there were numerous examples during the 2003 Ira War where US commanders operated with significant independence in order to secure critical though unexpected victoriesThese issues notwithstanding this must rate as one of the most

The German Way of War From the Thirty Years' War to the Third Reich Modern War Studies

SUMMARY × The German Way of War From the Thirty Years' War to the Third Reich Modern War Studies REVIEW The German Way of War From the Thirty Years' War to the Third Reich Modern War Studies Time and time again Citino focuses on operational warfare to demonstrate continuity in German military campaigns from the time of Elector Frederick Wilhelm and his great sleigh drive against the Swedes to the age of Adolf Hitler and the blitzkrieg to the gates of Moscow Along the way he undersc Kurz und vives short and lively If one had to pick a catchphrase to describe the typical fashion in which German armies tended to wage wars this is likely the one you would chose And as author Robert Citino showcases it would be uite apt To be fair the title is a tad of a misnomer we can t even properly call it German warfare until 1871 or at the close of the Franco Prussian War and the creation of the German Empire Rather up until then Citino focuses on the Prussian methodology of war fighting And it is Prussia and her particular doctrinal approach to making war that formulates the entirety of the future German method of war fighting Prussia as Citino describes it was a small sandbox in the northeastern corner of Central Europe barely fertile and surrounded by larger wealthier hostile states The Holy Roman Empire to the south Denmark and Sweden to the north and west and Poland to the east It was as a conseuence both of the geographical circumstances that Prussia found itself in and the relative impoverished nature of Prussia s infrastructure and agricultural system that drove the formulation of Prussian military doctrine Any conflict would have to take into consideration that as a Prussian you were likely to be outnumbered outgunned poorer and with a fairly fragile logistical network that couldn t hope to support a long drawn out conflict Therefore Prussian war fighting was aggressive highly aggressive sought out the flanks and pitched into them with a fury Speed was placed at a premium and the independence of commanders in the field and their ability to make snap judgements on the fly even if they contradicted orders of the King were sacrosanct All of these elements of Prussian war fighting were absorbed into the German Empire and carried on through the apocalypse of WW2 Citino rather than making his case by detailing and narrating every single conflict in exhaustive detail prefers the snapshot method taking a particular scenario and focusing his historical lens on that moment His selections read as a who s who of great military commanders and their battles From the Battle of Warsaw in the mid 1600 s through the wars of Frederick the Great the catastrophe of Napoleon s 1806 victories the 1813 War of Liberation the Wars of German Unification where Citino focuses first on Koniggratz and then the opening stages of the Franco Prussian War the First World War and finally ending with succinct analytical summaries of the campaigns in Poland Norway France Low Countries and Barbarossa in WW2 Throughout all of these examples you see the common theme of the PrussianGerman methodology of war making and largely Citino does a superb job of proving his main thesis There are a few uibbles however His treatment of Frederick the Great during the Seven Years War while detailing enough to prove Citino s main point on the unchanging nature of Prussian war making failed to mention that Frederick failed to settle the war in a short and lively way The Hapsburg forces and the Russians proved than capable of bouncing back after repeated drubbings and in truth the Allies won at least tactically battles against the Prussians than vice versa In fact Prussia was utterly exhausted bled white and nearly broken entirely by the war It was only a miracle divine in its provenance that rescued Prussia due to a death of a Russian leader and the subseuent political collapse of the coalition against Prussia While none of that disproves Citino s main thesis it could have been used to draw a parallel to the somewhat similar situation the Germans found themselves in during both World Wars And why the author didn t make than passing mention of the Spring Offensives of 1918 was a uestion I was asking myself as I finished the book Regardless of any of that however this is a stellar work and one that should be on any military historians bookshelf #PREKID
