  2. I think it was that it was able to use ground and air forces in combination to create a hole in the enemies line and massive amounts of damage.

    The Blizkrieg was a tactic that used armoured infantry with close air support to break through the opponents defenses using quick powerful attacks, then uses speed and surprise to encircle the enemy. Radio communication was very important for this strategy.

    This invasion that used a strategy designed to win quickly and without many casualities. It involved using aerial strikes, tanks, and a lot of manpower in a concentrated area to wipe out the enemy as rapidly as possible. The word Blitzkrieg actually means “lightning war”, so the battle is as quick as a lightning bolt (metaphorically speaking).

    Primarily, the weapons used. The Germans utilized the latest technology (new or improved tanks, motor vehicles, aircraft, and radio) in order to amplify the effects of an already developed method of attack. The Germans employed a similar style of attack at the beginning of WWI but less effectively.

    What made the WW2 German Blitzkrieg different and so successful was the awesome radio communication they had which helped them coordinate the flight attacks allowing the attack to happen quickly without suspicion from the enemy.

    The WW2 German Blitzkrieg concentrated offensive weapons along a narrow front, which would then breach the enemy lines and cause shock/disorganization. The Germans also used planes to prevent their enemies from properly distributing and resupplying forces. This resulted in a quick end to the battle.

    Radio communications were extremely effective in German Blitzkriegs. The commanders were able to coordinate the advance and keep their enemy off balance. Their swift and focused blows using mobile forces like armored tanks and air support. The attacks led to quick victories which limited the loss of soldiers and artillery.
