I'm in the last pages of Russell Hart's Guderian: Panzer Pioneer or Myth Maker. I have to say I am not impressed by Hart. He attacks Guderian relentlessly in a way I would see in a history forum but would not expect from a history professor. In Hart's view Guderian is damned no matter what he did, no matter what path he took or opinion he had. Hart contradicts himself as he tells the reader that Guderian was not "responsible" for the advancement of Germany's armor developement then turns full circle to refer to him as an innovator, doctrinaire and maverick pushing the cause of armor against those in the army (cavalry and artillery) that did not want to see it advance. I'm curious about the debate on Guderian. There seems to be two camps on his record; those that want to believe the gist of Guderian's memoirs and those that want to find the holes and "lies" and label Guderian as much less than how many remember him. Anyone here read any of the books about him? Anyone have some views they want to share from the histories on him?
