Citino (European history, Eastern Michigan Univ.; The German Way of War) deconstructs the fateful year that marked the end of the German army's long tradition of flexibility, independence, and technical superiority. Did Hitler's meddling doom a great tradition of independent command, or was it new radio capabilities, allowing higher command to reach farther and farther across the battlefield? Either way, 1942 was the turning point for the Wehrmacht as it began to retreat in the East and evacuate from Africa. A fine choice.
