Battle of France, spring 1940. German combat vehicles (Sd.Kfz.251/1 Ausf.A, Sd.Kfz.251/6 Ausf.A, le.gl.Einheitz-Pkw Kfz.2, German Drivers (1939-1945)) in 1/35 scale

 

Starting on May 10, 1940, Operation Gelb, Wehrmacht formations invaded the territory of Holland,
Belgium and Luxembourg. The French commander-in-chief, General Gamelin, ordered the French
army to engage in battle with units and subunits of the German troops. Fierce fighting unfolded, and
the battle for France began.
Parts of the Wehrmacht advanced rapidly, which was largely facilitated by the high degree of
motorization of the German armed forces. Tank units with the support of motorized infantry
advanced in swift throws. Wedging into the battle formations of the French, the German army used
the tactics of lightning war, also known as Blitzkrieg. Also, one of the components of the success of
the Wehrmacht was a well-functioning radio, allowing units to successfully coordinate their combat
operations.
