Extract from the entry on “hors de combat”: “France, May-June 1940. The anti-tank guns rapidly placed in a battery proved to be too light to act effectively against the heavily-armoured British tanks and most of them were put out of commission by hostile artillery, as well as their operators, before being crushed by the armoured enemy.”
Erwin Rommel, La Guerre sans Haine, Carnets, Éditions Nouveau Monde, preface by Maurice Vaïsse, Paris, 2010.
