Commander Blitzkrieg Doctrine Banner

Blitzkrieg (German, "lightning war") is "a headline word applied retrospectively to describe a military doctrine of an all-mechanized force concentrating its attack on a small section of the enemy front then, once the latter is pierced, proceeding without regard to its flank."

Game Info[]

The same can be said about using this Doctrine in Company of Heroes. The Blitzkrieg doctrine is a popular all-round choice and is especially effective against a British opponent. Using this doctrine means you can carry out fast assault ops by deploying overwhelming forces (with sneak attacks). Strong assault infantry and production bonuses help promote a strategy of aggressive expansion.
