Example text

For the first time the West responded to German actions with anger. The reaction stemmed more from public outrage than from any governmental recognition that Germany had stepped beyond the pale. Chamberlain himself commented to his cabinet that Hitler’s action was mostly symbolic. However, a storm of public protest in Britain forced the government to rethink Britain’s diplomatic course. Unfortunately, that reevaluation did not change the basic premise that war was avoidable. Chamberlain turned to active diplomacy to fence Germany in; appeasement never died, and as late as the summer of 1939 the British were offering diplomatic concessions and major industrial loans, if Germany would only behave.

Fritsch and Beck were the key players in the development of the panzer forces. In 1935 Beck conducted a general staff tour on how a panzer division might be employed, and by the next year the general staff was examining the potential of a panzer army. While the Germans drew heavily from the British armor experiments in the interwar period, tank innovators emphasized that panzer units must have more than armor; they must consist of an integrated force of motorized infantry, artillery, engineers, and signal troops.

Nevertheless, T. E. Lawrence’s adventures and the 1915 debacle at Gallipoli received far more attention in Britain than Allenby’s solid operational achievements. And while much of the German Army’s exceptional performance in World War II rested on a thorough reading of what had actually happened in the battles on the Western Front, their experiences in the East from 1914 to 1918 focused German attention on the possibilities inherent in using tactical successes to pursue larger goals, such as encircling and destroying enemy forces.
