The German Offensive in the West

Lecture no. 6 from the course: World War II: A Military and Social History

 The German Offensive in the West

Taught by Professor Thomas Childers | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

The German Blitzkrieg in Western Europe in the spring of 1940 brought an end to the strange period of "phony war" that had prevailed in the west since September of the previous year. This lecture looks at English and French preparations for the anticipated attack and Hitler's daring strategy, as well as the "miracle of Dunkirk" and the sudden and unexpected fall of France.
