The German campaigns in Europe and North Africa in 1939-42 ushered in a new era in warfare.
The theory of the Blitzkrieg (Lightning War) was put into devastating effect, with the Wehrmacht triumphant in Poland, Norway, the Low Countries and France, and Rommel winning great victories against the British in Africa.
