List here your opinions about who was the most efficient general in defending during ww2. For me, Heinrici is on the top of the list. He conducted great defensive battles(Moscow,retreat from Smolensk,Zeelowe for example). Especially in Moscow, where he held the front for around 2 months while greatly outnumbered(around 10 to 1 IIRC). As far as i know it was said that "he could retreat only when air became lead and still, after much thinking".
