Army Group North 1941
On 8 September 1941 the spearheads of German Army Group North reached the outskirts of Leningrad. The capture of the city seemed possible, but then Adolf Hitler gave the order to halt the advance. We offer an analysis of what turned out to be one of the most fateful decisions of World War II.

Articles

  • MacArthur’s Best General: George Kenney The collaboration of Gens. Douglas MacArthur and George Kenney won the war for the Allies in the Southwest Pacific. Kenney brought a vision of the strength of airpower as a support asset for ground operations, so much so that he restored MacArthur’s faith in it. His Fifth Air Force was the most combat-efficient of any in the Pacific, credited with over 3,400 confirmed kills.
  • The Ural Bomber: Gen. Walter Wever’s Vision for the Luftwaffe On 3 June 1936, Luftwaffe Chief of Staff Maj. Gen. Walter Wever died when the plane he was flying crashed shortly after takeoff. He believed that rapidly evolving aviation engine and design technology would deliver the strategic bomber Germany needed to win the coming war. He called it the “Ural Bomber,” and he intended to deploy a force of 300 of them.
  • Operation Torch It was the first major amphibious invasion of the war, and it was launched with doubt as to whether it would succeed. The problems facing the Allies were many, including determining strategy, developing tactics, procuring sufficient landing craft and naval support, organizing air forces and determining the composition of each element of the assault force.
