Lecture no. 5 from the course: World War II: A Military and Social History
Taught by Professor Thomas Childers | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
Blitzkrieg was more than just a revolutionary military strategy; it was an economic and diplomatic one, as well. This lecture examines the reasons why this three-pronged weapon so appealed to Hitler, and then looks at the first use of the Blitzkrieg strategy in the war against Poland in September 1939.
