Sample text

Only when the Twelfth Army commander explained to Guderian that the halt order came from the OKH, and not from von Kleist, did the panzer corps commander relent. List and Guderian, without informing either von Rundstedt or von Kleist, made an under–the–table deal to continue west with a ‘reconnaissance in force . Army group headquarters later endorsed the move and by the end of the day Guderian stood over 100km beyond Sedan. 20 Fortunately for them, nervousness at the strategic level and willfulness at the operational level had not robbed the Germans of momentum.

The 10th Panzer and Infantry Regiment Grossdeutschland on Guderian s left shoulder hit prepared French defenses near Artaise and remained stuck there for three days. This did not delay von Kleist, who adroitly shifted his Schwerpunkt. Covered by Rommel s 7th Panzer on his right (part of Hoth s corps), Reinhardt took advantage of the French concentration against Guderian to press on. The perceived threat to von Kleist’s southern flank soon grabbed the attention of von Rundstedt s headquarters. 17 Events even began to out-pace the Wehrmacht s ability to manage.
