Mr Ball's reading this, and we'll hopefully get a review soonish, but the subtitle has got me wondering. Greece 1941 'The Death Throes of Blitzkrieg.' I imagine most of us might cite the grind towards Moscow as the death of WW2 Germany's lightning war, but I quite like the idea of Greece as a candidate, or maybe being put on the defensiive around Alamein. Or did Germany ever ditch the concept, with the Bulge perhaps being a last roll of the Blitzkrieg dice? Despite insufficient forces, the will seems to have been present. Or do such approaches never die, really. The American civil war's general Forrest is often paraphrased as relying on 'Fastest with the mostest', which about sums Blitzkrieg up. Modern shock & awe/rapid dominance doctrine doesn't seem that far off. Can a specific point be identified for the German application of Blitzkrieg first starting to curl its toes?
