Frasi Heinz Guderian

Pubblicità

„When the situation is obscure, attack.“

—  Heinz Guderian
As quoted in Waging Business Warfare (1988) David J. Rogers, p. 236

„Ticket to the last station.“

—  Heinz Guderian
Fahrkarte bis zur Endstation. Shouted to his Panzertroops as they were passing him, indicating that they should go as far as they could; as quoted in Panzerkrieg : The Rise and Fall of Hitler's Tank Divisions (2002) by Peter McCarthy and Mike Syron, p. 83

„There are no desperate situations, there are only desperate people.“

—  Heinz Guderian
Es gibt keine verzweifelten Lagen, es gibt nur verzweifelte Menschen. As quoted in Die Deutschen gepanzerten Truppen bis 1945 (1965) by Oskar Munzel

„It's simply our duty to save these people, and we still have time to remove them! But it's useless to sacrifice men in this senseless way. It's high time! We must evacuate those soldiers at once!“

—  Heinz Guderian
Arguing with Adolf Hitler about the German army being cut off in the Courland Pocket; as quoted in Inside the Third Reich : Memoirs (1971) by Albert Speer, p. 534

„You hit somebody with your fist and not with your fingers spread.“

—  Heinz Guderian
Man schlägt jemanden mit der Faust und nicht mit gespreizten Fingern. As quoted in Die Deutschen gepanzerten Truppen bis 1945 (1965) by Oskar Munzel, p. 209; this indicated the need to concentrate tank forces for one strong push in one direction and not distribute them over a large area.

„To imitate the ostrich in political matters has never been a satisfactory method of avoiding danger; yet this is what Hitler, as well as his more important political, economic and even military advisers, chose to do over and over again.“

—  Heinz Guderian
Context: To imitate the ostrich in political matters has never been a satisfactory method of avoiding danger; yet this is what Hitler, as well as his more important political, economic and even military advisers, chose to do over and over again. The consequences of this deliberate blindness in the face of hard facts were devastating; and it was we who now had to bear them. On the failure of Hitler and his advisors to face realities of various situations, especially those of the military on the Eastern Front, in Panzer Leader (1952), Ch. 6 : The Campaign in Russia, p. 190

„New weapons require new tactics. Never put new wine into old bottles.“

—  Heinz Guderian

„Boot 'em, don't spatter 'em!“

—  Heinz Guderian
Nicht Kleckern sondern Klotzen! As quoted in How Great Generals Win (1993) by Bevin Alexander, p. 227; this statement became a stock phrase which Hitler often repeated. It is comparable to the adage "Don't do things by half."
