  • Need help with references (Cases Weiss and Gelb)

    OK, I've talked about the damnable book I claim to be working on, but I have decided to test the waters on a less demanding work. So I'm gonna try and write a book about 1939 in an alternate WWII. I need references. I need four things at the moment:

    1. A good (not too long) study on the invasion of Poland

    2. A good (not too long) study on the battle of France

    3. Something that deals with the crimes of the Wehrmacht and SS in both campaigns

    4. A counterfactual assessment of what would happen if Hitler invaded France in October 1939

    The last one is because (at least as I have it now) Hitler demands France be crushed before the spring of 1940, as he plans to invade the USSR when Stalin starts threatening it's neighbors. Thus the Nazis come off as the savior of Europe from the Red Menace. Cagey, but Hitler in this world is just as fanatical, and just as evil, but he's a lot smarter about it.

    Anyway thanks for any help!
    How many Allied tanks it would take to destroy a Maus?
    275. Because that's how many shells there are in the Maus. Then it could probably crush some more until it ran out of gas. - Surfinbird

      Check out "The Rommel Papers". There is a lot of info in there and nothing too long at any one point.

        Contact the author of this book, and propose a translation of his book in English.

          I can only help you with Case Blau because I don't feel like Weiss or Gelb tonight.
