Also, where was blitzkrieg used?
Blitzkrieg tactics were used in the successful German invasions of Belgium, the Netherlands, and France in 1940, which saw audacious applications of air power and airborne infantry to overcome fixed fortifications that were believed by the defenders to be impregnable.
Subsequently, question is, what tanks were used in Blitzkrieg? The Panzer IV Tank played an important role in Blitzkrieg. After Adolf Hitler obtained power in 1933, the German government was open about its tank production. In the spring of 1934 the German Army began developing the Panzer tank. Over the next few years the Panzer I, Panzer II, Panzer III and Panzer IV were produced.
Also to know is, is the blitzkrieg used today?
Yes and no. For obvious reasons, we no longer call it blitzkrieg. In fact, the modern US version of blitzkrieg was developed by innovators like George S. Patton, Jr.
Why was the blitzkrieg so successful?
Radio communications were the key to effective Blitzkrieg operations, enabling commanders to coordinate the advance and keep the enemy off balance. These techniques were used to great effect in 1939, when the Polish Army was destroyed in a series of encirclement battles.
