VON MANSTEIN: In my opinion that can be explained as follows: Politically we generals had not had any say for a long time, because the political objections raised by the generals, for instance on the occasion of the occupation of the Rhineland and the march into Czechoslovakia, had turned out to be without substance.
VON MANSTEIN: All I knew about the tasks of these Einsatzgruppen was that they were organized to prepare for the political administration; that is to say, to carry out the political screening of the population in the occupied territories of the East, and they were acting on special instructions under Himmler's responsibility.
VON MANSTEIN: In the chain of command, particularly the military one, one must differentiate between the practical subordination, which is the chain of command for the fighting at the front, and the economic subordination, that is the chain of command for the purpose of supplies, food, motor fuel, and billets.

 Manstein's Drive East
Unbeknownst to OKH, STAVKA had planned their own offensive to retake Kiev, and both arms of Manstein's drive east along the north and south banks of the Dnieper would have to deal with the masses of Russian armor heading north and west on Kiev.
Commanding the vehicles for Manstein was Lt. Seddon, a young, 33-year-old native of Wesel who instinctively understood the vehicle's strongpoints and weaknesses, and deployed them to great and demoralizing effect on enemy troops, taking them unawares both in attack and on defense.
So taken with the Hetzer and Seddon's performance was Manstein, that before the final drive on Moscow, he ensured that all his AT guns were Hetzers.

VON MANSTEIN: Yes, in my opinion, it was issued for purely military reasons; namely, because Hitler-as I know-wanted to free as many of the forces in the Kuban as possible in order to use them in other parts of the Eastern Front.

VON MANSTEIN: I know, for example, that Generaloberst Blaskowitz, who succeeded Field Marshal Von Rundstedt as com-mander in the East, that is, in occupied Poland, protested and raised objections against the conduct of the Police in the Government General, and that there was some sort of a row about it, whereupon he was relieved.
