Heinz Wilhelm Guderian fue un militar alemán, coronel general de la Wehrmacht y Jefe del Estado Mayor General del Ejército, considerado uno de los mayores genios militares del siglo XX y conocido por ser uno de los principales impulsores del concepto de la moderna guerra relámpago, artífice de la mecanización del arma de caballería blindada de los alemanes de la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

Su trabajo fue fundamental en el desarrollo de carros blindados en las dos guerras mundiales, destacando ampliamente los Panzer II, III, IV y en especial el Panther, algunos de los más eficaces de la Segunda Guerra Mundial y entre los más innovadores de la historia. Guderian fue uno de los artífices de la optimización de las comunicaciones por radio del arma blindada.[1]​ Sus ideas estaban muy influidas por los teóricos John Fuller y Liddell Hart[2]​ y por el militar soviético Mariscal Mijaíl Tujachevsky. Durante la invasión de la Unión Soviética fue conocido como uno de los generales más eficaces y activos del frente del Este y era apodado como Schneller Heinz .[3]​

Frases Heinz Guderian

„There are no desperate situations, there are only desperate people.“

— Heinz Guderian
As quoted in Die Deutschen gepanzerten Truppen bis 1945 (1965) by Oskar Munzel

„To imitate the ostrich in political matters has never been a satisfactory method of avoiding danger; yet this is what Hitler, as well as his more important political, economic and even military advisers, chose to do over and over again.“

— Heinz Guderian
Context: To imitate the ostrich in political matters has never been a satisfactory method of avoiding danger; yet this is what Hitler, as well as his more important political, economic and even military advisers, chose to do over and over again. The consequences of this deliberate blindness in the face of hard facts were devastating; and it was we who now had to bear them. On the failure of Hitler and his advisors to face realities of various situations, especially those of the military on the Eastern Front, in Panzer Leader (1952), Ch. 6 : The Campaign in Russia, p. 190
