Student vs Manstein (Round 2)

Gerneraloberst Kurt Student

Kurt Student (May 12, 1890-July 1, 1978) was a German Luftwaffe General who fought as a fighter pilot during the First World War and as the commander of German Fallschirmjäger (parachute) troops during the Second World War.

Manstein

Erich von Manstein (November 24, 1887–June 10, 1973) served the German military as a lifelong professional soldier. He became one of the most prominent commanders of Nazi Germany's armed forces (Wehrmacht). During World War II he attained the rank of Field Marshal (Generalfeldmarschall).

He was the initiator and one of the planners of the Ardennes-offensive alternative in the invasion of France in 1940. He received acclaim from the Nazi-German leadership for the victorious battles of Perekop Isthmus, Kerch, Sevastopol and Kharkov. He commanded the failed relief effort at Stalingrad and the Cherkassy pocket evacuation. He was dismissed from service by Adolf Hitler in March 1944, due to his frequent clashes with Hitler over military strategy.

Student just got one try, and almost failed with Crete. Manstein on the other hand had utter disdain for the Nazis and had no time for their racial purity agenda. Combine that with that he had his dachshund trained to do the "Heil Hitler" great, and we have s winner!

Manstein. I'm still upset that he beat Mannerheim so easily.

How could they do this Kurt Student? I guess he never had a chance in the finals anyways. Bravo for Manstien, he deserves some recognition.

I'm in the same boat... I thought Mannerheim would have put up a better fight... I'm going to go with Kurt on this one - I like fighting for the underdog - especially when the underdog is in control of the Fallschirmjäger troopers... By the numbers...
