Blitzkrieg listen from Blitz lightning + Krieg war is a method of warfare whereby an attacking force spearheaded by a dense concentration of armoured and motorised or mechanised infantry formations with close air support breaks through the opponent's line of defence by short fast powerful attacks and then dislocates the defenders using speed and surprise to encircle them with the help of air superiority. Through the employment of combined arms in manoeuvre warfare blitzkrieg attempts to unbalance the enemy by making it difficult for it to respond to the continuously changing front then defeat it in a decisive Vernichtungsschlacht battle of annihilation.During the interwar period aircraft and tank technologies matured and were combined with systematic application of the traditional German tactic of Bewegungskrieg maneuver warfare deep penetrations and the bypassing of enemy strong points to encircle and destroy enemy forces in a Kesselschlacht cauldron battle. During the Invasion of Poland Western journalists adopted the term blitzkrieg to describe this form of armoured warfare. The term had appeared in 1935 in a German military periodical Deutsche Wehr German Defence in connection to quick or lightning warfare. German manoeuvre operations were successful in the campaigns of 1939–1941 and by 1940 the term blitzkrieg was extensively used in Western media. Blitzkrieg operations capitalized on surprise penetrations e.g. the penetration of the Ardennes forest region general enemy unreadiness and their inability to match the pace of the German attack. During the Battle of France the French made attempts to re-form defensive lines along rivers but were frustrated when German forces arrived first and pressed on.Despite being common in German and English-language journalism during World War II the word Blitzkrieg was never used by the Wehrmacht as an official military term except for propaganda. According to David Reynolds Hitler himself called the term Blitzkrieg 'A completely idiotic word' ein ganz blödsinniges Wort. Some senior officers including Kurt Student Franz Halder and Johann Adolf von Kielmansegg even disputed the idea that it was a military concept. Kielmansegg asserted that what many regarded as blitzkrieg was nothing more than ad hoc solutions that simply popped out of the prevailing situation. Student described it as ideas that naturally emerged from the existing circumstances as a response to operational challenges. The Wehrmacht never officially adopted it as a concept or doctrine.In 2005 the historian Karl-Heinz Frieser summarized blitzkrieg as the result of German commanders using the latest technology in the most beneficial way according to traditional military principles and employing the right units in the right place at the right time. Modern historians now understand blitzkrieg as the combination of the traditional German military principles methods and doctrines of the 19th century with the military technology of the interwar period. Modern historians use the term casually as a generic description for the style of manoeuvre warfare practised by Germany during the early part of World War II rather than as an explanation. According to Frieser in the context of the thinking of Heinz Guderian on mobile combined arms formations blitzkrieg can be used as a synonym for modern manoeuvre warfare on the operational level.
