They used to call it the art of warfare. War as a game of strategy. Certain moves can be considered brilliant, like the French campaign, his greatest triumph. Some moves required brute force, such as the conquest of Crimea and Sevastopol, the world’s strongest fortress.

“My most able general”, said Hitler, “is the most dangerous opponent” said the allies. A Prussian field marshal obsessed with duty, discernment, and obedience.
Why wage war for a criminal? Why obedience to the very end? There is virtually no other commander-in-chief who fought as many battles with Hitler and contributed as much to solutions at the front as Manstein did.

    I thoroughly enjoy documentaries based around the German’s view of the war, it’s various atrocities and victories. Makes a nice (and necessary) change from American ‘History Channel’ style docs about how the US stomped out fascism in Europe with their military muscle and prowess.
    It’s difficult to assess culpability however. Thousands of German soldiers, officers and Generals were guilty of crimes against humanity, but this is what happens when anonymity of action is present, and simple people are encouraged to commit atrocities in the name of their country, leader or God.
