Overview

Research in original documentation at the German Federal Military Archives and elsewhere showed Frieser that Germany's 1940 campaign in Western Europe happened differently from the conventional assessment as an action planned from the very beginning to be a so-called blitzkrieg. First published in 1995 as the official German history of the 1940 campaign, Frieser's analysis (translated by American historian John Greenwood) finds that the German victory was not inevitable. He shows that the campaign was neither seamlessly executed nor widely agreed on at different levels of command. Frieser, a colonel in the German army, heads the Department of World Wars I and II at the Military History Research Institute of the Bundeswehr in Potsdam.
