Kenneth Macksey joined the Royal Armoured Corps in 1941, saw action in Normandy in 1944 and Germany in 1945, and after World War II spent more than twenty years as an officer of the Royal Tank Regiment. He is internationally known for his works on military history, including Guderian: Panzer General, Kesselring: The Making of the Luftwaffe, and his recent Why the Germans Lose at War.Review:
This book is back in print! Greenhill books is publishing it. This book is better than Macksey's Guderian and it even seems that Macksey believes that Kesselring was the superior strategist compared to Guderian. You always new that the Field Marshal was one of the top German generals based on the German's defensive efforts in Italy and now you can finally know this amazing man. Macksey points out that Kesselring's lack of publicity was usually due to his modesty and unwillingness to "play the German propaganda machine" as Rommel did through out his career. From World War I, the rise of the Luftwaffe, the battle of Britain, Barbarossa, and finally the Mediterranean front, Kesselring's genius and mistakes are covered in detail. In the end you realize that Kesselring stood near the top of Germany's World War II generals. Macksey is brings Kesselring alive in his book and by the end of the book you may discover what I did -- empathy for this amazing man. --Michael Confoy
