Colorado College's Dennis Showalter Publishes New Book

Colorado College History Professor Dennis Showalter has published a new book, "Hitler's Panzers: The Lightning Attacks That Revolutionized Warfare." Showalter, a renowned World War II scholar, presents a comprehensive and unbiased study of Nazi Germany's armored forces and their influence on the role of the army in the Third Reich. Panzers, self-contained armored units able to operate independently, became the nucleus of the German army's fighting power as well as its moral focus and the core of its identity, establishing an entirely new military doctrine. Showalter is a visiting professor and guest lecturer at West Point, and former president of the Society for Military History. The book, published by Putnam Berkley Publishing Group, will be available Dec. 1.
