What kind of warrior was Heinz Guderian?

A master strategist. Author. Leader.

Heinz Guderian

About HW Guderian 1888-1954:

Sixty per cent of what the German Panzer Forces became was due to him. Ambitious, brave, a heart for his soldiers, who liked and trusted him; rash as a man, quick in decisions, strict with officers, real personality, therefore many enemies. Blunt, even to Hitler. As a trainer – good; thorough; progressive. If you suggest revolutionary ideas, he will say in 95 per cent of cases, ‘Yes’, at once. General Freiherr von Geyr

Guderian Quotes:

Actions speak louder than words. In the days to come the Goddess of Victory will bestow her laurels only on those who prepared to act with daring.

Kleckern sondern Klotzen! (Boot’em, don’t spatter’em!)

You hit somebody with your fist and not with your fingers spread.
