This book describes the continuing Blitzkrieg campaigns of 1940 with the German invasions of Norway and Denmark and the later attack on the Low Countries and France. The narrative text, written by Mark Healy, an authority on German armoured warfare in World War Two, addresses the events of the year 1940.This witnessed the greatest triumph of the German tank arm in the campaign that saw France and the Low Countries vanquished in just six weeks.

This was also the year which saw the overwhelming vindication of the armoured warfare tactics advocated by Guderian and his supporters throughout the 1930s. Following the French surrender, and certain in the conviction that he now had to hand a war-winning weapon, Hitler ordered the doubling of the strength of the Panzerwaffe in preparation for its greatest challenge in the summer of 1941.

This volume covers all the following areas: Light divisions to Panzer Divisions - the Panzerwaffe in the aftermath of the Polish campaign- Panzer operations in Denmark and Norway- the influx of new equipment - PanzerjAger, Sturmgeschütz, Schützenpanzerwagen and the first self-propelled artillery prior to the assualt on the west- the evolution of Case Yellow - the attack in the West - from October 1939 through to the launch and execution of the devastating armoured assault of May 1940- preparing the panzers for Sealion - the invasion of Britain- the doubling of the size of the Panzerwaffe.

Over 150 rare and mostly previously unpublished photographs illustrate the detailed text and show the Panzerkampfwagen I, II, III, and IV battle tanks, plus the Sturmpanzer I Bison (Sd.Kfz.101)150mm heavy infantry gun (mortar) carrier, the specialist Bruckenleger IV - bridging vehicle, the Maschinengewehrkraftwagen (Kfz.13) Adler light armoured car and Sonderkraftfahrzeug 251 (SdKfz 251) half-track. The photographs are further supported by detailed computer-generated artworks of key vehicles which also portray campaign camouflage and markings, plus Orders of Battle.
