"I found this a good solid volume depicting the Panzer operations which did so much to unnerve and outfight the Allies. But for Hitler’s stop order before Dunkirk it could have been a complete disaster. I would think for someone starting a study of this period, for the price and information, this is a ‘must have’. Highly recommended." --Scale Modelling Now

" As with the entire Osprey "Campaign" series, this is a visually appealing, well-organized, perfectly competent book with maps, diagrams, and photos of high quality. As always, it's a tidy little package, and collectors of the series will surely want to grab a copy." -- Stone & Stone (www.stonebooks.com)

Best concise coverage of this complicated and dynamic campaign ever written 14. Mai 2014
Von Dauntless - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Osprey has simply outdone themselves by filling this small volume -- the first of two covering Hitler's 1940 invasion of the West -- with extraordinary detail in such a concise account of this decisive and defining modern mechanized offensive.
The detail and depth of the narrative is presented in a well paced text that follows Guderian's and Rommel's panzers, as well as all the others, across southern Belgium and northern France to the English Channel. Unlike others, Dildy incorporates the use of air operations as an integral part of the campaign -- on both sides -- rather than treating air battles as an afterthought or an appendage to the ground combats.
Osprey's patented 'bird's eye views' present the rather involved battles at Sedan and Dinant, as well as the British armoured attack at Arras, in a clearly understandable, visual manner. The maps are somewhat busy and complicated, but then again, so was the campaign! The artworks are accurate, dramatic and evocative -- Peter Dennis certainly has a gift for depicting combat action in a dramatic and evocative way.
This book is a 'must have' for any military historian or enthusiast interested in this world-changing campaign. I am eagerly awaiting the publishing of the second of these two volumes -- Fall Gelb 1940 (2).

Planning translated into battlefield success... 28. Mai 2014
Von D.S.Thurlow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
"Fall Gelb 1940 (1) is the first of a two part examination of the German offensive in the West that inflicted a stunning defeat on France, Britain and their Allies. The event has been studied extensively over the years, but this Osprey Campaign Series book does so in a concise manner, making sense of a complex and fastmoving military operation. Author Douglas Dildy is very conversant with the concepts of the operational level of warfare. His excellent dissection of the German and Allied campaign planning offers clear indications of why one side won and the other lost.

"Fall Gelb 1940" follows the standard Osprey format, with an introduction, a comparison of the opposing forces, and a fairly detailed account of how the campaign unfolded. The author is naturally focused on the German armored thrust through the Ardennes and the key events at Sedan, as Guderian's panzers unhinged the Allied defense, but other sectors are mentioned. The aftermath nicely wraps what happened. The narrative is much enhanced by a nice selection of photographs, maps, diagrams and illustrations. Nothing this short can be comprehensive, but this book is a very good introduction to the topic. A future volume will discuss the German airborne assualt on the Netherlands. Recommended.

An efficient, well-packaged and cost-effective summary 9. Juni 2014
Von R. A Forczyk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
After years of providing only passing coverage of the 1940 German campaign in the West (the WestFeldzug), Osprey is beginning to publish a multi-volume summary of these landmark military operations. In 2010, Osprey’s Campaign Series produced volumes on the Maginot Line by Marc Romanych and on Dunkirk by Doug Dildy, and then in 2011, Steven Zaloga wrote Panzer IV vs. Char B1 Bis for the Duel series. The latest addition to this West Front cornucopia is Doug Dildy’s new volume in Campaign, Fall Gelb 1940 (I), which covers the German panzer breakthrough at Sedan to the Channel Coast. This volume provides daily coverage of actions in von Rundstedt’s Heeresgruppe A area of operations in southern Belgium during the period 10-28 May 1940. The next volume will cover von Bock’s Heeresgruppe B operations in Holland/Belgium in May 1940. Overall, this is a very good volume, which provides an excellent narrative summary, supported by detailed maps and a proper balance of German and French sources. Although there is nothing terribly new here – this phase of the campaign has been covered extensively before in many other books – this volume is an efficient, well-packaged and cost-effective summary.

The author begins with the usual focus on German strategic planning in regard to operations against the Anglo-French and neutral Belgians in 1939-40, with the oft-repeated genesis on the von Manstein sichelschnitt plan being favored by Hitler. In the plans section, the author agrees with the contention that France’s General Gamelin essentially squandered his strategic reserves with the foolish Dyle-Breda plan before the campaign even began – history has not been kind to Gamelin. The 6-page opposing forces section is one of the best parts of the book and focuses primarily upon the opposing mechanized and air forces and manages to focus on the capabilities that were actually brought to bear in this sector. He slips in a bit about opposing C2 capabilities, as well, although this probably should have been enlarged a bit. I’ve often thought, as an Osprey Campaign series author myself, that the format would benefit from a sub-section on terrain/weather and this is one of those volumes where understanding the nature of the terrain is critical to the outcome. The French believed the Ardennes Forrest to be “impenetrable” and the Meuse River to be difficult to cross, but the Germans proved both assumptions false – this narrative could have benefited from a bit more light on this crucial aspect. The order of battle is extremely detailed, down to regimental-level and squadron-level.

The campaign narrative begins with a very good discussion of the initial Luftwaffe air strikes on Allied air bases and a battle scene by Peter Dennis of Do-17s doing low-level bombing on the RAF. In truth, much of the ground combat in this volume reads like Karl-Heinz Frieser’s The Blitzkrieg Legend (albeit with more French content), but the discussion of air operations really stands out in this volume. The author then covers the German advance through the Ardennes and crossing of the Meuse River, which is good, but nothing new. The supporting 2-D maps are fine but I did not like the 3-D BEV maps; they look like big blue and red blobs overlayed on a green tartan backdrop. I find that the best BEVs are very focused and depict small parts of a battlefield, not large areas and forces. The author does manage to include some French source material (only secondary, not primary) and the B/W photos are quite nice.

The second half of the narrative covers the German breakthrough to the English Channel and the futile Allied counterattacks trying to stop it. The author is careful not to duplicate material from the Dunkirk 1940 campaign volume, so readers should not be concerned about excessive overlap. Overall, the narrative, the 2-D maps and battle scenes are all quite good. However, I found the BEVs of little use. This is a very colorful and balanced campaign summary.

The Panzers overwhelm the French and English 25. April 2014
Von Steven A. Peterson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
After the "phony war" or "sitzkrieg," the German army began its Western offensive. There were several elements to the attack; the focus of this book is made clear by the subtitle--"Panzer Breakthrough in the West." This is one of the slender Osprey volumes, this one in the "Campaigns" series.

There was disagreement among German military leaders about where the center point of the offensive should be. One view was that Army Group B (commanded by General Bock) should be the centerpiece, driving through Belgium to hit the Allied left. Another view was that Army Group A (commanded by General Rundstedt) ought to be the centerpiece. And key to this, articulated by Heinz Guderian and Erich von Manstein, was a heavy use of panzer divisions slicing through the Ardennes Forest, considered as too difficult an obstacle by the French for a successful attack. How wrong they were!

The book contains a brief examination of key commanders of the German army (such as Rundstedt. Kleist, Guderrian, and Rommel) and the French forces (Gamelin, Georges, Billotte, Huntziger, and Corap). The following chapter outlines the respective battle plan for the Germans and French. Next, the opposing military forces (including armor and air forces) , including the Order of Battle--pages 26-30, including British forces).

The campaign itself is then described. A series of maps helps provide a sense of the movements of both armies, although the maps can be a bit confusing at times. The celerity of the Panzer advances set a tone that unnerved Allied forces. The tale of the strike force is told pretty well.

This is a very useful brief volume on the Panzer attacks, unraveling the Allied forces. Only the rescue at Dunkirk prevented this from being absolutely a catastrophic defeat for the French and English.
