On February, 17th, 1940 General Erich von Manstein presented to Hitler his plan for the "Westfeldzug"
), the "Sichelschnittplan" (sickle cut plan). To occupy the Netherlands,
so the opponents would concentrate their troops in the direction of Belgium, while fast moving German tanks would roll through the Ardennes towards
the Channel. A terrain thought to be impenetrable.
At that time German soldiers were given a drug to enhance their performance, Pervitin
tablet form of Methamphetamine.
On May 13th Ewald von Kleist ordered his troops to stop. And oh boy they did not. Heinz Guerdian, also known as "the fast Heinz" and Erwin Rommel kept
going full speed ahead.
Until they ran out of terrain. Literally, they could only be stopped by the Channel.
Can you imagine? Super high soldiers through all ranks driven by meth "we gotta keep going man" probably all having diarrhea... no wonders the French
troops were shocked.
*disclaimer: I wanted to do this for the MUL short stories, but there just wasn't any way I could have told that without violating all t&c's, I hope
this way it's fine... and just as hilarious to some as it is to me. There are books about the topic drugs and Nazis I highly recommend. Hitler too was
abusing many, many substances.
