About this Item: US Army. EBook-Download Only. Condition: EBook. 008974-Ardennes-1944; An Analysis Of The Operational Defense 55 Pages1986 This study examines the nature of the defense at the operational level of war by analyzing the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944 using the concepts of blitzkrieg and "web" defense. The monograph begins by discussing the influence of defensive theory on the operational concepts of blitzkrieg and "web" defense. The German concept of blitzkrieg incorporates Clausewitz's theory of the offense by emphasizing surprise, speed, and concentration at the decisive point. The counter to the blitzkrieg offense is found in COL F.O. Miksche's concept of "web" defense. This concept incorporates Clausewitz's theory of the defense by emphasizing the advantages of terrain, time, and counterattack. The Battle of the Bulge provides an excellent example of a "web" defense pitted against a blitzkrieg offense. The German blitzkrieg in the Ardennes in 1944 failed for many reasons: 1) Army Group B did not concentrate its strength against the most vulnerable section of the Allied line; 2) The rugged Ardennes terrain could be easily defended against attacks by mechanized forces; 3) Key American commanders (Eisenhower, Gerow, and Middleton) quickly recognized the value of holding several key road junctions (St. Vith, Malmedy, Bastogne, Marche, and Rochefort) which dominated movement through the Ardennes; 4) The Allies held the shoulders of the German penetration; 5) The Allies quickly concentrated armored and motorized units to blunt the German penetration; and 6) Army Group B lacked operational reserves and adequate logistic support. The analysis of the Ardennes shows that the defense is indeed the stronger form of war and that a "web" defense can be employed effectively against a blitzkrieg offense. The Ardennes provides an excellent example of many important German operational concepts which are very similar to Soviet offensive concepts. The use of COL Otto Skorzeny's 150th Panzer Brigade is very similar to the anticipated Soviet employment of Spetsnaz units into NATO's rear area. German panzer divisions were employed in a role similar to Soviet Operational Maneuver Groups (OMG). The Allies effectively used a "web" defense to counter these threats. If NATO is to defeat a Soviet attack without resorting to the use of nuclear weapons, it must adopt a viable operational defensive concept. "Web" defense is such a concept.

About this Item: The Mercier Press Ltd, Ireland, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. During the Second World War, two young Irishmen served in the armed forces of Nazi Germany, swearing the oath of the Waffen-SS and wearing the organisation s uniform and even its distinctive blood group tattoo.Ironically these young men had originally joined an Irish regiment of the British army, and but for a twist of fate would have ended up fighting against the Germans. Instead, the pair were recruited to the German special forces after they were captured on the island of Jersey.Under the command of Otto Skorzeny, the man who rescued Italian dictator Benito Mussolini from a mountain top prison, they were involved in some of the most ferocious fighting of the war in the last days of the Third Reich.This account, which also covers some of the other Irishmen who sided with Nazi Germany, draws heavily on their own accounts and on state papers which have been released in recent years.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: Spanish . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Sinopsis En esta novela, Josignacio nos narra, la historia de Cesar Augusto, un hombre relativamente joven, culto y elegante, que estudio Ingenieria en Coheteria en la antigua Union Sovietica, gracias a su alto nivel de inteligencia. Por problemas con la justicia en su Cuba natal, y desilusionado del sistema en el que crecio y al que fielmente sirvio, decide emigrar a los Estados Unidos en busca de una nueva vida. Por los azares del destino, ya con casi 40 anos de edad, es reclutado en Miami, por Julio Hernandez, un subjefe de la mas poderosa y secreta organizacion criminal de dicha ciudad. Su historial le resulto muy atractivo a Julio, pues se juntaban muchas cosas en el que lo hacian el perfecto prospecto: su formacion militar, el dominio del idioma ruso, el conocimiento de artes marciales, asi como el entrenamiento recibido en los cuerpos elites rusos Spetsnaz GRU. Y Que decir de los anos que paso entrenando a Las Avispas Negras de las tropas especiales cubanas! Cesar era todo un cuadro. Ya en la organizacion, su jefe maximo, Nicolas -alias el Viejo-, somete a Cesar a una dificil y violenta prueba con el objetivo de comprobar su lealtad. El que Cesar pasara satisfactoriamente la prueba de la que muy pocos salian airosos, lo convierte en uno de los hombres claves de Nicolas pero al mismo tiempo, el rumbo de su vida cambiaria drasticamente. A partir de este momento, Cesar tendra un solo afan: vengarse de sus jefes. Cesar recluta a unos viejos amigos de la infancia de igual preparacion que el, creando, al margen de la organizacion, un comando que hubiera envidiado el mismo Otto Skorzeny. Mientras disena un plan magistral para lograrlo, aparece Malena Wong, la que va a ser el verdadero amor de su vida. Ella, mantiene a su vez una relacion secreta con el poderoso viejo Nicolas, complicandole a Cesar, aun mas, el logro de su ya dificil objetivo. En este turbulento periodo, en el que Cesar se debate entre sus deseos de venganza y su gran amor por Malena, se da cuenta que habia caido en una trampa practicamente sin salida, perpetrada por Julio, quien, a espaldas del Viejo aspira a convertirse en el nuevo jefe de la organizacion. La envidia, el odio y la ambicion de casi todos los que le rodean, le hacen la vida bastante dificil y llena de peligros constantes. El camino que sigue Cesar para sobrevivir en la obtencion de su proposito, ahora sintiendose responsable por alguien mas que el mismo, es lo que va tejiendo la trama de esta novela llena de crimenes y violencia explicita. La novela se inspira en muchos sucesos actuales, derivados de una gama de estrategias delictivas reales, perpetradas por grupos u organizaciones similares, y cuyas redes incluyen las abundantes operaciones de la mafia colombiana, el caso del traidor del Cartel de Sinaloa, Mexico, asi como la conexion con la renaciente y poderosa mafia Rusa radicada en el sur de la Florida. Cesar esta a la distancia de cometer un solo error para perder tanto a su verdadero amor, como la vida o su libertad. Los sucesos previos a la materializacion de su plan iran cambiando inexorablemente el esperado final. Seller Inventory # APC9781481882958

Su historial le resulto muy atractivo a Julio, pues se juntaban muchas cosas en el que lo hacian el perfecto prospecto: su formacion militar, el dominio del idioma ruso, el conocimiento de artes marciales, asi como el entrenamiento recibido en los cuerpos elites rusos Spetsnaz GRU. Y Que decir de los anos que paso entrenando a Las Avispas Negras de las tropas especiales cubanas! Cesar era todo un cuadro. Ya en la organizacion, su jefe maximo, Nicolas -alias el Viejo-, somete a Cesar a una dificil y violenta prueba con el objetivo de comprobar su lealtad. El que Cesar pasara satisfactoriamente la prueba de la que muy pocos salian airosos, lo convierte en uno de los hombres claves de Nicolas pero al mismo tiempo, el rumbo de su vida cambiaria drasticamente. A partir de este momento, Cesar tendra un solo afan: vengarse de sus jefes. Cesar recluta a unos viejos amigos de la infancia de igual preparacion que el, creando, al margen de la organizacion, un comando que hubiera envidiado el mismo Otto Skorzeny. Mientras disena un plan magistral para lograrlo, aparece Malena Wong, la que va a ser el verdadero amor de su vida. Ella, mantiene a su vez una relacion secreta con el poderoso viejo Nicolas, complicandole a Cesar, aun mas, el logro de su ya dificil objetivo. En este turbulento periodo, en el que Cesar se debate entre sus deseos de venganza y su gran amor por Malena, se da cuenta que habia caido en una trampa practicamente sin salida, perpetrada por Julio, quien, a espaldas del Viejo aspira a convertirse en el nuevo jefe de la organizacion. La envidia, el odio y la ambicion de casi todos los que le rodean, le hacen la vida bastante dificil y llena de peligros constantes. El camino que sigue Cesar para sobrevivir en la obtencion de su proposito, ahora sintiendose responsable por alguien mas que el mismo, es lo que va tejiendo la trama de esta novela llena de crimenes y violencia explicita. La novela se inspira en muchos sucesos actuales, derivados de una gama de estrategias delictivas reales, perpetradas por grupos u organizaciones similares, y cuyas redes incluyen las abundantes operaciones de la mafia colombiana, el caso del traidor del Cartel de Sinaloa, Mexico, asi como la conexion con la renaciente y poderosa mafia Rusa radicada en el sur de la Florida. Cesar esta a la distancia de cometer un solo error para perder tanto a su verdadero amor, como la vida o su libertad. Los sucesos previos a la materializacion de su plan iran cambiando inexorablemente el esperado final. Seller Inventory # APC9781481882958

About this Item: Elmfield Press, Morley, 1977. Hardback. Condition: Mint. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Thus. COMMANDO EXTRAORDINARY. Charles Foley. Foreword by Major General Sir Robert Laycock. The Elmfield Press, Morley. 1977 First edition ISBN 0705700755 232pp Hardback. This mint unread copy is bound in cloth covered boards with bright gilt titling to the spine, tight, white, bright and square. The unclipped dust wrapper has some mild edge wear and is sunned to the spine but is otherwise in fine condition. Otto Skorzeny (12 June 1908 – 5 July 1975) was an Austrian SS-Standartenführer (colonel) in the German Waffen-SS during World War II. After fighting on the Eastern Front, he accompanied the rescue mission that freed the deposed Italian dictator Benito Mussolini from captivity. Books and papers written about him prior to the 2013 release of records pursuant to the Nazi War Crimes Declassification Act incorrectly refer to him as "Field Commander" of the operation. Skorzeny was the leader of Operation Greif, in which German soldiers were to infiltrate through enemy lines, using their opponents' languages, uniforms, and customs. At the end of the war, Skorzeny was involved with the Werwolf guerrilla movement. Although he was charged with breaching the 1907 Hague Convention in relation to Operation Greif, the Dachau Military Tribunal acquitted Skorzeny after the war. Skorzeny fled from his holding prison in 1948, first to France, and then to Spain. He later lived in Ireland. From the library of the late General Sir Edward Burgess K.C.B., O.B.E.
