Nevertheless, whatever one may find to criticize in Rundstedt, he was shrewd enough to give Manstein the freedom to advance his own ideas for the benefit of the army group and for the campaign as a whole.
Within the German Army this rather odd arrangement could be made to work: in an Allied one it would be unthinkable. For the moment, Halder was still hindering any fresh thinking.
There was not yet a conscious desire to adjust the focus of attack from north to centre Army Group B to A , but rather an implicit acknowledgement that the main effort might have to be switched if Army Group B were not to make as rapid progress as anticipated.
Good in theory but hard in practice: a very real difficulty lies in achieving this kind of flexibility within the land environment.
Once an initial deployment is set, armoured forces rarely can be rushed around the battlefield quickly enough to give substance to a newly designated main effort at the operational level.
Switching air power and now combat aviation is often the only effective method. In his next memorandum of 6 December, Manstein displayed his full powers of military estimation, requesting the necessary forces if Army Group A were to fulfil the operational promise that shone so brightly in his mind.
A second army the Twelfth was required for committal in a southwesterly direction to defeat offensively any French counterattack.
A third army the Sixteenth , as previously envisaged, would cover the deep southern flank between the northern end of the main Maginot Line westwards towards Sedan.
Manstein set out his case for a grand total of forty divisions, including an army group reserve of four. Significantly, even at this advanced stage of planning, he requested only two corps of armoured and motorized troops XIX and XIV Corps respectively.
Whilst this represented the potential to build a main effort with Army Group A, it hardly constituted a concentration of a sufficiently large grouping of mobile troops to bring about the intended psychological shock effect on the Allies.
The key to gaining the necessary operational surprise was the rapid appearance of armour in strength at the Meuse and its undiminished impetus thereafter.
The Sichelschnitt had yet to acquire its required cutting edge. Perhaps he could not bring Rundstedt round to appreciating their potential, or he felt the time was not yet ripe to call for their subordination to Army Group A.
In any event, Manstein did not call unequivocally for sufficient additional armour despite implying the requirement.
Critically, the fact remains that following the events of 17 February, sufficient armoured forces were switched from Army Group B to Army Group A.
In the meantime, other events had been conspiring to bring about a shift of operational direction. The disclosure of part of the German campaign plan the so-called Mechelen incident had represented a serious lapse in operations security.
Against regulations, he had carried on his person the operation order of First Air Fleet. His pilot got lost, ran out of fuel and made a forced landing in Belgium.
Although Reinberger tried to burn the document, at least part of it remained intact and fell into Belgian hands. Whilst there was no immediate change of plan, the German High Command could not dismiss the possibility of their intentions being made known to the Allies.
Brauchitsch visited Koblenz again on 25 January to attend a conference at Headquarters Army Group A that included the subordinate army commanders.
Manstein presented once again his ideas, declaring that the insertion of XIX Corps alone through the Ardennes represented a half-measure, which would not achieve the desired success at Sedan.
However, Brauchitsch refused to release the follow-on XIV Motorized Corps from the OKH reserve to Army Group A. Thus there would be no change of main effort until operations were under way, indicating to Manstein that the potential compromise of the plan had not yet caused a fundamental change in the thinking of the high command.
Whether the professional disagreement between Brauchitsch and Manstein turned into a bitter argument bordering on insubordination, as has been suggested, remains to be substantiated.
Before he left Koblenz, Manstein organized a war game on 7 February for Army Group A. The Kriegsspiel had long been a tool of the Prussian then German General Staff to develop and refine operational plans, rehearsing move and counter-move.
More armoured forces would be required. Significantly, Halder noted in his diary:. I think there is no sense in the armoured corps attacking alone across the Meuse on [the] fifth attack day.
No later than [on the] third attack day, OKH must be able to decide whether it wants to launch a concerted attack across the Meuse or let the army groups slug it out on their own.
On the conclusion of the exercise, Rundstedt thanked his departing chief of staff in the presence of all the participants.
Manstein was deeply moved by this friendly gesture, recording in his memoirs:. It was a further source of satisfaction to me that the two army commanders of our Army Group, Generals Busch and List, as well as General Guderian, not only deplored my removal but were genuinely dismayed by it.
He requested that he at least be given a Panzer Corps: his request was not granted. As a result our finest operational brain took the field as a commander of a corps in the third wave of attack, though it was largely due to his brilliant initiative that the operation was to be such an outstanding success.
Manstein departed Koblenz on 9 February for a short home leave at Liegnitz prior to assuming command of XXXVIII Army Corps.

Der gleichzeitige Angriff der Armee in Richtung Südwesten sollte die Flanke der vorgehenden Truppen zum Kanal decken und das Bilden einer neuen, geschlossenen Front der Alliierten schon in den Ansätzen zerschlagen.
Ein solcher Abwehrriegel wäre in der zweiten Phase des Feldzuges nur schwer und unter hohen Verlusten zu durchbrechen gewesen. Von Mansteins Plan barg jedoch ein erhebliches Risiko.
Alles hing davon ab, dass der Gegner tatsächlich in die belgische Falle hineinmarschierte. Die Alliierten rechneten damit, dass die Deutschen wie schon nach dem Schema des Schlieffen-Plans angreifen würden.
Deshalb erwarteten sie den feindlichen Schwerpunkt in Flandern. Im südlichen Frontabschnitt war Frankreich durch die Maginot-Linie geschützt.
It is the same Jewish class of beings who have done so much damage to our own Fatherland by virtue of their activities against the nation and civilisation, and who promote anti-German tendencies throughout the world, and who will be the harbingers of revenge.
Their extermination is a dictate of our own survival. Manstein did nothing to prevent the killing of Jews and other civilians in the areas where his units were operating, and in which his Eleventh Army actively participated.
Manstein felt his men deserved the watches, since they were doing so much to help Ohlendorf's men with their work. Antisemitism was common in Germany and throughout Europe during this period, and Manstein's attitude towards the Jews had its roots in his exposure to and assimilation of these views.
His criticism of Hitler was based solely on their disagreements over the conduct of the war, not about the regime's racial policies.
He sent a letter of protest to General Beck, commenting that anyone who had volunteered to serve in the armed forces had already proven their worth.
Lemay speculated that Manstein may have been interested in protecting his two Mischlinge grandnephews who were already serving in the Reichswehr.
He may have also been concerned about the possibility that he had distant Jewish ancestry. Along with ten other former senior officers, Manstein was called on in by the Amt Blank to formulate plans for the re-founding of the German army.
On 20 June , he spoke to the Bundestag , giving his analysis of strategic power considerations and the country's defence and spoke about whether the country should have a professional army or a conscripted army.
His opinion was that the length of service for Bundeswehr conscripts should be at least 18 months, preferably 24 months. His idea to form a reserve force was later implemented.
Manstein's war memoir, Verlorene Siege Lost Victories , was published in West Germany in and was later translated into several other languages.
The book was a highly acclaimed best-seller, critical of Hitler and his leadership style. He has been described as a militärische Kult- und Leitfigur "military cult figure and leading personality" , a general of legendary—almost mythical—ability, much honoured by both the public and historians.
Manstein and his wife moved several times after his release from prison, living in Essen and Bonn for a time before settling into a house near Munich in The second volume of his memoirs, Aus einem Soldatenleben "A Soldier's Life" , covering the period from to , was published in Erich von Manstein died of a stroke on the night of 9 June at the age of As the last but one surviving German field marshal Ferdinand Schörner died 2 July , he was buried with full military honours, his funeral being attended by hundreds of soldiers of all ranks.

Lund: Historiska Media. Kopp, Roland Kommandeurs-Reden zu Hitlers Geburtstag am Von Manstein, chief of staff of Army Group A , had originally formulated his plan in October in Koblenz on instigation of his superior General Gerd von Rundstedt , who rejected Halder's plan, both because of professional jealousy and because it wouldn't lead to a decisive victory over France.
Von Manstein's first thoughts were rather traditional, envisaging a swing from Sedan to the north to obliterate the Allied armies in a classical Kesselschlacht or annihilation battle.
When discussing his intentions with Lieutenant-General Heinz Guderian , commander of Germany's elite armoured corps, the latter proposed to turn it into a more " Fullerite " strategy by avoiding the main body of the Allied armies and swiftly advancing with the armoured divisions to The Channel instead, to cause a collapse of the enemy by catching him off guard and cutting off his supply lines.
It was thus Guderian who introduced the true " Blitzkrieg " elements to the plan, while Von Manstein had at first many objections against this aspect, especially fearing the long open flank created by such an advance.
Guderian managed to convince him that the danger of a French counterattack from the south could be averted by a simultaneous secondary spoiling offensive to the south, in the direction of Reims.
Guderian before the war had generated much interest for the theories of John Fuller, though never fully endorsing them. These changes didn't reflect a change of mind on his part, but were thought necessary by him because the original conception was too radical to be acceptable and many conservative generals considered Guderian himself as too radical also.
His views were flatly rejected by Halder and Walther von Brauchitsch however. Reformulating them in a more radical sense didn't help and late January Halder managed to remove Von Manstein to the east by having him promoted commander of XXXVIII Army Corps.
Von Manstein and Halder were old rivals: in Von Manstein had been the successor of chief of staff Ludwig Beck but had been removed from this position when the latter fell into disgrace with Hitler because of the Blomberg-Fritsch Affair.
OKW explained the victory as a consequence of the " Tooze wrote that a debunking of the technological interpretation of the German victory should not lead to the conclusion that it was the genius of Manstein or the superiority of German soldiers that caused the victory.
There was no German grand-strategic synthesis; the course of the campaign depended on the economic mobilisation of and the geography of western Europe.
During the winter of —, the quality of German armoured forces was substantially improved and the plan attributed to Manstein was not a revolutionary departure from traditional military thinking but the concentration of superior force at the decisive point, a synthesis of "materialism and military art".
Casualties were high but the swift end to the campaign made them bearable. The Luftwaffe was also fully committed but the Allied air forces held back a substantial reserve, in anticipation of a longer campaign.
The Luftwaffe gained air superiority but suffered far greater losses than the army. Operations on 10 May cost the Luftwaffe aircraft and by the end of the month 30 percent of its aircraft had been written off and 13 percent badly damaged.
The concentration of units in the Ardennes was an extraordinary gamble and had the Allied air forces been able to bomb the columns, the advance could have been reduced to chaos.
The "audacious" manoeuvre of Army Group A comprised only about twelve armoured and motorised divisions, most of the rest of the German army invaded on foot, supplied from railheads.
The Channel coast was a natural obstacle, only a few hundred kilometres from the German border and over such a distance, motorised supply from railheads over the dense west European road network was possible and the invaders could live off the land, amidst the highly developed agriculture of western Europe, unlike in Poland where it had been much harder to maintain momentum.
The odds against Germany were not so extreme as to be insurmountable by better planning for an offensive based on the familiar principles of Bewegungskrieg.
The German army managed to concentrate a hugely powerful force at the decisive point but took a gamble of great magnitude that could not be repeated if the attack failed.
When the Germans attempted to repeat the success of against the Soviet Union in , little was left in reserve. The Red Army had a greater margin of numerical superiority, better leadership and more room for manoeuvre; the Napoleonic principle of the concentration of superior force at the decisive point was impossible for the Germans to achieve.
In the edition of Breaking Point , Doughty described how in a publication, Fuller wrote that the Battle of Sedan was an "attack by paralyzation" that he had devised in and incorporated into Plan Doughty wrote that although the Germans hoped for a quick victory, there is little evidence to support Fuller and that if the military theory later labelled Blitzkrieg was influential in the German officer corps, only those like Manstein and Guderian had fully accepted it.
The disagreement between Kleist and Guderian that led Guderian to resign on 17 May, showed the apprehensions of the German high command about the speed of movement and vulnerability of the XIX Panzer Corps.
Doughty suggested that the development of the Manstein Plan showed that the force sent through the Ardennes was intended to follow a familiar strategy of Vernichtungsgedanke intended to encircle and annihilate the Allied armies in Kesselschlachten cauldron battles.
Twentieth-century weapons were different but the methods were little changed from those of Ulm , Sedan and Tannenberg When German forces broke through on 16 May, they did not attack French headquarters but advanced westwards in the manner of a cavalry raid.
Doughty wrote that Fuller had called the advanced forces of the German army an armoured battering-ram, covered by Luftwaffe fighters and dive-bombers acting as flying field artillery, to break through a continuous front at several points.
The XIX, XLI and XV panzer corps had operated as the leading force through the Ardennes but the most effective Allied resistance to the south and south-west of Sedan was reduced by the combined operations of infantry, tanks and artillery, a fact overlooked for long after Luftwaffe bombers had not acted as flying artillery and their main effect occurred on 13 May, when bombing collapsed the morale of the French 55th Division.
Air attacks helped the ground forces to advance but destroyed few tanks and bunkers, most of which were taken by the skill and determination of German infantry, sometimes helped by anti-tank guns, accompanying guns and a few tanks.
Fuller's writing was in the vein of much of the early reports of the Battle of France but since then new studies had added nuance, dwelling on the complications and chaos of the military operations.The British official military history is mistaken in suggesting that Rundstedt was the originator of Sichelschnitt. Perhaps the author did not appreciate that, under the German general staff system, a chief of staff had the authority to originate thinking on behalf of his commander and to communicate directly to the chief of staff in the next. Anticipating a firm Allied reaction should the main thrust of the invasion take place through the Netherlands, Manstein devised an innovative operation—later known as the Sichelschnitt ("sickle cut")—that called for an attack through the woods of the Ardennes and a rapid drive to the English Channel, thus cutting off the French and Allied. plan sichelschnitt Blitzkrieg From the Invasion of Holland to the Fall of France After invading Poland, Hitler used his stunning “lightning war” tactics against the West to defeat France, Holland, Belgium, and other countries.
