The German Army [Heer]

    The German approach to the subject of military organization has always been one of extreme flexibility. Basic to German thought is that in view of the rapid progress of science as applied to war, organzational practice must remain flexible if it is to be in a position to take prompt advantage of new scientific developments. Thus, an outstanding characteristic of German military operations in World War II was a remarkable coordination of the three sister services composing the German Wehrmacht: The Army, Air Force and Navy. The value of a balanced combined arms force was vividly demonstratedby the early German campaigns, when aircraft, tanks, and infantry were successful ingredients of the Blitzkrieg. At the heart of this powerful Wehrmacht was the German Army. In mobilizing for WWII, the growth of the Army was spectacular, and the result was one of the finest military machines known to history.
