“Contrary to a notion poplar at the time- a notion which has never quite died- the Wehrmacht was not a giant solid phalanx of tanks and armored cars, spitting flame and death as it clanked through whole nations. Hitler had a horse drawn army. It was larger than Napoleon’s, but mainly it advanced into Russia as the Grande Armee had, by animal power and the march of men’s feet.”
Narrative voice from Herman Wouk’s novel “The Winds of War”
