  • Zone Defense Tactics

    While reading up on the Eastern Front i came across this term. Quick google search showed didn't bring up any substantial info short of the fact that it was invented/codified by general Raus and used by him in Lvov-Sandomierz operation and East Prussia.
    Can some more knowledgeable posters shed some light on how this zone defense differed from the standard defense in depth ? Much appreciated

    The tactic is explained in Ruaus's book "Panzer Operations: The Eastern Front Memoir of General Raus, 1941-1945".

    I would check my copy and post, but it's still packed away. (lack of shelf space )
    Scientists have announced they've discovered a cure for apathy. However no one has shown the slightest bit of interest !!

      I just read an interesting book Germany's Panzer Arm In WW II by R.L. Dinato stackpole.
      They dedicate an entire section to Doctrine: Correcting the myths which offer some really decent IMO explanations of defensive tactics.
