Stosstrupptaktik!!! 12. Juni 2012
Von T.A.L. Dozer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf

Stephen Bull's "German Assault Troops of the First World War: Stosstrupptaktik - The First Stormtroopers" is by far one of the better books on this subject. The First World War is generally characterized as a war of attrition with static defenses of trench warfare and very draconian. However this war led to the development and implementation of the Stormtroopers and their tactics, which is considered today as major development in the history infantry warfare. The Stormtroopers were specialist soldiers of the German Army in the First World War. In the last years of the war, Stormtroopers were trained to fight with infiltration tactics, part of the Germans' new method of attack on enemy trenches during the stalemate tactics of trench warfare. Men trained in these methods were known in Germany as Sturmmann (literally "storm man" but usually translated as "stormtrooper"), formed into companies of Sturmtruppen ("assault troops", more often and less exactly "storm troops"). The infiltration tactics of the stormtroopers are still in use today, in one form or another. This book looks at the first part of the war, were the standard assault on a trench line consisted of a lengthy artillery barrage all along the line, with coordinated attacks to smash the enemy positions, followed by a rush forward of infantry in massed lines to overwhelm any remaining defenders. This process either failed, or at most gained only a short distance, while incurring enormous casualties and the armies settled into trench warfare. Instead of this standard assault, troops were trained to consider fire as a means to facilitate movement in progress. Movement would be a call for fire. Shock troop tactics (Stosstrupptaktik) advocated using combined arms in the attack, particularly light machine guns, grenades, flame-throwers and gas, with a decentralized fire control and tactical command system (known as Auftragstaktik in German) in close combat. Overall, this is must read for the military historian and infantrymen serving today.
